We got some wonderful video taken of the Victorian fashion show at the Gaslight Gathering Steampunk & Victoriana convention a few weeks ago. You can get a good look at each and every gown the models wore that were copied or inspired by fashion prints or photos.
I’m the first model in Video #1 wearing my 1850s turquoise & gold plaid gown, and the last model in Video #2. Each video is 15 minutes long. Enjoy!

These are my critics, Chloe and Rudy, who are very helpful with my sewing. It’s very hard work.
This is a photo diary of my costuming "travels"; where I've learned and struggled to make historical costumes for myself. They're not always pretty, but always fun. And I want to share with others what I learn along the way. **You can find me on Facebook, or have my posts delivered to your email by signing up at the lower part of the right column.**
