About the project

I created this blog simply to document the process of my making a whole 18th century outfit – complete with stays, pocket hoops, petticoat, stomacher and stuff. I have the ambition to do at least 80-90% by hand and in as time typical materials as possible.
   I might also feuture tips, tricks, how-to’s and other related things I’ve found in my search for inspiration.

    I have been searching all over for a pattern that I like, cant find one I am crazy over. Do you have any suggestions on where to find some? I have looked at several fabric stores and online. Where did you come with yours? Thanks!
