So, for the last 7 months I have been living in a party house with some friends. The internet wasn't working in my room---thus, I haven't used it much until now. I'm still working at the costume shop, fulltime, and its great! I learn so many new things, and I get to work on great things. Downside, we're understaffed, so I serve as the graphic designer/marketing/tech person as well. Tech. Hah! It's interesting though.

Hey all! :wave: I was just researching some Victorian costume for work and came across this link. Thought it would be useful for anyone working in or wanting to work in 1850s-1910s. http://www.tudorlinks.com/treasury/freepatterns/index.html#Victorian :D Some belly dance costume uploads to come!

dude. You have two accounts. O.o
Two GuiseMaker accounts, or this one and my AlexandraRena deviantart account? One is for art, one for costumes...
I discovered that. ;) I just throw everything under my one account.
You're amazing! I'm an aspiring designer, and although I love sewing I still consider myself a beginner. Your garments are such an inspiration to me!
Thank you so much! It is good to hear that from someone, a nice boost of confidence! :) (Sorry for the late reply, I was on vacation!)
You're very welcome! You deserve praise at least, if not something much more for your work :)
