Costume Blog

Sorry I haven't posted in a while!
Nothing too interesting going on really, but I have been doing a lot of sewing/costuming lately.
I'm going to be attending a costume event in the beginning of December so I've been getting a new outfit together. It's a Regency Tea at a historical home here in MA.
I can't wait I think it's going to be fun!

So, if you want to see my progress, thoughts and pictures you can check out
my new costuming blog:
Bella Miss Ella
{she's my dress form}

The reason I started a Live Journal blog is because there is a huge costuming network going on over there and it makes it easier for me to keep tabs on others and vice versa! I'm kind of enjoying it so far, although I like the formatting options for blogger more. But that's neither here nor there!

I'll be sure to post pictures from the event here when it happens so don't worry too much!

Hey Carly, Thanks for the link for the rick rack, and I enjoyed looking over the costumes you're working on. :) I think I'm going to order from http://www.elegantstitches.com/RickRack.htm as it's cotton and then I can just dye it. I already have 9 1/2 yards of the smaller size I'll need so I just have to order some in the jumbo size. Anyway, my plan at this point is to make the underskirt out of a basic cotton or muslin and dye all of it so it matches. I'm hoping to get my vest finished soon and posted on the blog after which I'll really dive into the skirt!
