Updates and a new website!!

Jun. 12th, 2016 | 12:34 pm

Hello Everyone,

Sorry I've been missing in the past months. I've finished a pirate costume! Mina has been paused because I haven't been able to find the right fabric. I have a billion regency projects to do. (Why does this always happen?)

But I do want to announce that I finally have my own website!! I would appreciate it if you could visit!


Here's a preview:

Hope everyone is doing well!

Petticoat Done!

Mar. 21st, 2016 | 03:35 pm

And so it begins...my biggest UFO ever to be undertaken. What's that you say? Well it's the MINA RED GOWN from BRAM STROKER'S DRACULA. I finally feel able to tackle it this year. I'm gonna do it.

First step, foundations. DONE! All that's left is some thread trimming...but wait..that's Michael's job! Ahahahahaha!

Wish me luck people, I'm really gonna need it. Especially when it comes to the handsewing section. God I hate handsewing.

Weekly Round-Up!

Mar. 20th, 2016 | 03:03 pm

Hey Everyone! Just wanted to do a little update of fun projects, foods, and books that I'm into this week!

First, I made apple turnovers. Yum.

Next, I found a new comic called The Beauty. If your into crime-type stories with CDC disease fighting elements, then check this out!

Also, started a new petticoat a few days ago. Ugh, I think I still have about 3-4 layers of ruffles in the back.

How was your week?

It's nice to meet all of you!

Mar. 15th, 2016 | 04:34 pm

Dear Friends,

Hi. My name is Ashley. Since I just discovered all the cool kids in the historical sewing community actually use livejournal, I'll use it too. I just love the amount of talent on here and I am especially grateful to Angela starlightmasque for introducing me on livejournal to everyone!

I've never really posted about sewing since I usually just complain to my boyfriend Michael about it, so this will be a good change of pace. (For him anyways :))

So here's some sewing info about me.

My mannequin's name is Madeline.
I own a Brother sewing machine.
I really really REALLY want a new embroidery machine.
My favorite era is Victorian.
I love doing movie costumes too.
And if I had all the money and time in the world to spend on costuming, I would just make Charles Frederick Worth gowns. All day long. From every decade.

Nice to meet all of you!
