Hi, everyone! My name is Krinn and I'm from Michigan, that lovely mitten shaped region of the US. I stumbled upon this website about two weeks ago looking for historical patterns. I've been sewing since I was a teenager, and would like to branch out from Simplicity/McCalls/Vogue, what have you.

I can't wait to start sewing, and hope to have a lot of fun!

Hey there Krinn! Have you ever made a victorian dress before?

I haven't. I have made corsets, jackets, and dresses, but never anything Victorian. I am looking for something with a little bit of challenge, and I'm sure the easiest patterns may accomidate me :lol:

Have you ordered any patterns yet? Do ya know what you want to make? I know I always design 50 outfits for every one that I make.

I ordered the underwear pack for underneath the bustle gowns. I saw the suggestion to work from the inside out. I have had 12 different ideas for the exterior so far, so I am having trouble deciding which one. In the mean time, though, I can get the corset/bustle/chemise, etc. done, and narrow down what to do. :mrgreen:
