You're welcome, PB

A couple months ago I had visited here, while working on another gown (not finished with that yet) and dropped everything to work on this. I just love seeing all the wonderful costumes people have made, and this is like sensory overload, just like Costume College. I figure if I like looking at every...

Photos from the Dickens Faire in Riverside, CA

B&B Lace

I'll check out B&B next Tues on my day off. I only live 10 mins from there. They are going out of business, because they lost their lease, and have no idea where to go. It may be closed already but I'll give it a shot. I'm going to need a white lace since all my other lace embellishments on the ...

Well, I noticed that they're not making any comments on the costumes; just anyone visiting can vote. I received a couple nice votes and 1 poor. But then all of them seemed to get one poor vote so I figured it was just a loser. I mostly wanted to see other's costumes. I also know what's right and wro...

If you know someone that can scale up the patterns, Frances Grimble's Edwardian Modiste has lots of them. These are authentic patterns.
