    Hello there! I’ve only recently started taking an interest in a theater or film career, I’d like to work on a set, behind the scenes, maybe as a make-up artist or costume designer. I really love ballet costumes for example. I would really like to start sewing as well, like you draping first, then cur out patterns. Can you recommend any books as a guideline to start? Because I don’t have time to take a lot of courses, but I can read up and try things out in my own time.

    Oooh I just found your blog and I’m so excited! What you do is so beautiful and inspiring! Keep up the amazing work!

    Hi Angela…I am A-mazed at your work!!! Do you do anything else besides sew??? How are you so prolific?? I believed I read somewhere on your blog that you are a self-taught sewer. I also am self taught although I’m considerably older than you😳. I am in process of making my second 16th century garb but I work almost full-time(on my feet all day) and so progress is slow. Plus I make all Christmas gifts and then there is always “life”!!! I have also been a professional seamstress and I must say your work is BEAUTIFUL!!! Thank you SO much for sharing on your blog; you’ve are an inspiration to me to get moving!😬 Do you do in-depth research before sewing each outfit? you do anything else? I’d love to chat online with you if you have a minute between projects.😁

    It does not hurt that the seamstress looks like Holliday Grainger! Is that you in the pictures? The work is perfection.

    You are absolutely incredible. I have been sewing since 1991 and with each project, I always tend to bite off more than what I’d expected. A 13 piece dress for my first ever projects when others were telling me to just make a tank top.
    I am also self-taught and went into sewing originals for teens in high-school was my specialty.
    One of my bucket list items is to sew a full Victorian gown.
    Again you’re incredible.
    I keep wondering the amount of funds that go into the material for each project. lol

    Hello Angela, Amazing, amazing work and talent. My great niece would like me to make her a tulle skirt with flowers. Noticed you created one with artificial flowers. I am stumped on how to clean it without the use of doing via dry cleaning. Can you let me know. I thank you for your time and assistance

    I came across your YouTube channel and I’m so glad I checked out your blog as well!
    These pieces are perfection, it’s amazing how much detail you put into your works! I’m sure you’re proud of your own creations regardless but just know that you’re an inspiration (and helpful teacher via your videos) and I hope my sewing skills will become as amazing as yours someday!
    I’m new to sewing currently but your 1860’s Pink Sateen Ball Gown is a shining example of the type of royal dress I’m hoping to make as my biggest “dream to reality” project. It will be grand finally having the skill to make something so elegant!

    Your outfits are incredible. I also want to get into historical costuming. Your work inspires me to start sewing and live the dream of wearing old clothes.


    Hola Angela: hace mucho tiempo encontré tu blog y pude admirar muchas creaciones bellas, recuerdo un vestido que llevaba flores en el faldon y otro de Elsa…hemosos . Por misterios de la vida paso un tiempo considerable que no te visitaba….Pero he vuelto y me doy cuenta que tu talento sigue en crecimiento….Yo por hobbi confecciono vestidos de niñas y disfraces infantiles….Tus creaciones son un sueño…. Ahora ya siempre estaré pendiente d tus notificaciones a mi correo…Siempre esperando poder disfrutar de tus creaciones..una amiga…Desde Chile. Jeanette
