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.**

Colored Pencil photo of my red/black bustle gown

In lieu of anything substantial to post about right now, since I'm in the middle of 4 projects, I wanted to post this photo that was taken of me at the recent Biltmore Winter Tea I went to. The photographer posted it, saying it was slightly out of focus, so she photoshopped it.


What I also like is that it looks like an older photo but with the two different eras of dress being together.
