This blog contains fabric, things constructed out of fabric, and the ultimate fabric item costumes. This includes favorite costumes from movies/TV, costumes at renfaire, Halloween etc., stuff I've made, and from time to time a rant random comment or the all encompassing "other".
Lately the "other" has been taking over so be warned.

A pirate,  a Lady, and a Musketeer walk into a Reniassance Festival. This could be a bad joke or my day. You decide.

The quest for a dress has ended. Yippie. I went to an actual shop and tried on some dresses. I fell in love with  two but the price just wasn’t right. Good thing I can sew. I found a pattern and some fabric. I’m going to have a red dress with just a little black lace on the back detail. And the best thing is if I make it it’s gonna be cheaper.

My lunch buddy today. This little one has something wrong with his/her right eye, but was still curious enough to come hang out by me for part of my lunch.

This pattern from Butterick is almost exactly like one of the Betty Page dresses from modcloth.  All that is missing is the keyhole.
I could probably make a keyhole with not much difficulty.  The big problem again is finding fabric that I like and figuring out if I want to spend the time making a dress or just buy it.
