As of now, I have been sewing since I was in grade school - thanks to my mom who taught me how - but have only been actively costuming for about three and a half years. In regards to the Victorian obsession, it's been active for many years but became a full blown addiction after doing work with local historical society in college. So now not only do I sew Victorian clothing, but I collect materials and do some teaching on Victorian life.

Furthering the obsession, I love to read books and watch movies set during the same time period as well. While this blog will mostly be focusing on costume creations and finds, there will no doubt be reviews popping up from time to time about the last best seller book, Masterpiece Theatre series, or Hollywood blockbuster.
So that's my life in a nutshell, a modern person who enjoys the stylish Victorian lady's life. I am looking forward to posting future entries on projects, things I discover with them, my little fashion findings, and other Victoriana tidbits that are bound to pop up. Happy reaading!
