Over the years, this community has been an incredible place. I've found friends, researched all the things, archived treasures.
But it is time to move on. I'll be shutting down my accounts soon.

If anyone is still active enough here, that they would like to step up as moderator/maintainer for the list. Please let me know!

beautiful piece from the V & A

if anyone is still out there, we could relocate to Pinterest or Facebook?

I miss LJ's heyday, but social media moves on.

Hello all!

I'm afraid I've been a bad bad moderator. Life, full time work, etc, all eating my journaling time.

hope sewing is like riding a bicycle!

After making do and using hand-me-downs far too long, the Horde all grew enough that some new bits HAD (and still have) to be made!

6yr old girl got a heavy (very soft antique) linen cotte, and a jacquard sideless. 14yr old boy got black linen hosen. Both patterns need some perfecting and the sewing skills definitely need the rust shaken off, but all in all, not a bad outting! Of course, I forgot my camera for 12th Night, so pics will have to wait for the next event.

Next a boy cotte and then on to trouble shooting the patterns, and undergarments for all.

Hope all your holidays were spectacular and best of the New Year to all.

Earlier garb I made for my son- 16th century doublet and hose for age 1-2

It occurs to me I never posted about the garb I made for him when he was smaller.

Here is what it looked like in the end, him and I together:

Toddler doublet and hose, one year later

The doublet and hose did still fit, as my son is a slim little fellow.
