Nice!

Hi Kris, Love your dress. Very pretty. Wish your hubby had gotten the whole dress in the picture, though. :) I'm going to make the TV pagoda bodice too. I've decided to lose some weight before I start sewing, so it may never get done. :( :lol: If I ever ever do finish it, I hope it turns out as nice...

Wow!

What a great thread! :D Beautiful horses, lovely riding habits. I Did not know about Friesians. Wonderful! Very noble looking horses. I love horses, too, but have never owned one. When I was twelve I fell in love with a quarterhorse named Toby. My parents almost bought her for me, but I think the co...

fond memories

I have fond memories of Disneyland. We only lived 20 minutes from it and went four or five times a year. The first time we went my mother dressed me in a Native American style dress with a coonskin cap (hate to admit, made of bunny fur) and a white Davy Crockett purse (with bunny fur). This is when ...

Not copied exactly

Hi. :D I was looking at my Dover book of Harper's Bazaar fashions from 1867 - 1898 and on page 86 there is a description of a polonaise walking suit. The description says, "This elegant and useful suit is copied from a beautiful Paris costume... It is well adapted to materials of all kinds, and may ...

Forget It

It just sounds like a pain in the butt to dye long hair!!!!


I have waist length gray hair. I was thinking of a non-permanent dye for my hair when I do CW reenacting. Maybe I should just forget it. :cry:

Hi Peggy. We signed up on the board about the same time. I remember how excited you were about starting your dress. I have been wondering how you were doing. I'm just so impressed by what you have created. Wonderful dress. Can't wait to see you in it with your hat and all. Great job!

Wow ffg, you are fast! I haven't even got around to measuring myself to find out what pattern size I need.

I am computer challenged, I guess, I couldn't get the picture, but congratulations! Hope some of your energy can zap me through the computer and get me going.

Hello Vanessa. I don't know that much about hair jewelry, but I think it was both for mourning and lovers keepsakes. I think the sites I listed have a brief history of hair jewelry. The idea of hair mourning jewelry seems rather morbid to me. I can't even wear my mother's rings or necklaces and she'...

Hair Jewelry

Hi all. When I was lurking around the forums the other day, I found a discussion about hair jewelry. I can't find where it was, now, so will start a new topic. Anyway, if anyone is interested, I found two sites that sell hair jewelry. They also have information about hair jewelry and even sell hair ...
