Dear Larisa! Please, don't worry, I'll check the mail in the nearest time. It even may take a couple of weeks to get the package from GB. And I hope very much too that it will not be lost :)

Hi Larisa,
I checked on Amazon and Barnes and Noble website and they have a different version of the book by Lucy Johnston, "Nineteenth-Century Fashion in Detail". I am going to order that version which is scheduled to be released in April. Thanks!

Hi Larisa!! Wow! I love the photos of the coats!! Are reproduction 50s patterns hard to find? as I really like some of the clothing lines from the 50s and 60s,fashion sorta took a dive in the 70s. I mean leisure suits good grief LOL I can't wait to see the finished coat,with the trim around the collar and cuffs!! I have 2 hand me down fur coats that I was thinking of turning into a muff or pillows or a purse. To sew fur however I guess I would need an industrial sewing machine for that ?? I had company arrive in the middle of typing this and now am too brain tired to think anymore :-) Other than I saw this book in Amazon and thought I'd pass along to you ,looked very interesting. Hugs, Jeri

Thank you for the comment. I have added some pics of things I have made. I love animals and Sarah (my cat) is one spoiled girl. There is also a pic of my pup on his bed I made him.

Hi Larisa,
I plan on adding pictures by the end of March. Lately, I've been out fabric shopping because I can't resist the fabric sales they are having. Currently I am working on fitting muslins from U.S. vintage patterns from the 1960's and '70s. Watching your photo video has inspired me. Now I want to find a book on fashion for the Victorian era. Keep up the good work!

Hi Larisa,
I used to have a picture of me wearing the dress when I was 11. I have no idea where it is. I'll take a pic of it on the hanger for you...it may take a while since I will be in the process of moving in the next month. Thanks for asking! Terri

Hey Larisa! Thanks for the reply during a busy time... The outfit is wonderful ,I bet sewing the gathered areas was a challenge.It is a bonus for your employer that you are quite the seamstress!! I saw a industrial sewing machine ad for about $500 is that a reasonable price and it was second hand,would booklets on how to use still be available thru Brother?? It looks like it would be capable of just about any sewing need!! Thanks and Hugs! Jeri

Hey Larisa! Miss you... Curious as to what kind of project you are currently working on??!! I am also looking for feedback on sewing machine suggestions.I'd like one that is capable of sewing upon denim,canvas and vinyl and also standard fabrics,maybe a few special tricks also. I'd look forward to you sharing your thoughts! Hugs, Jeri Saw this and thought of you :-)

You are so talented!! Nice work! My grandma was a tour guide, and that is how I became so interested in the costume part of sewing. I still have the 1800's style, farm girl, calico dress with a white apron that she made me. It was really cute.

Larisa,
Thank you for reading my comment on that page. No, I haven't sewn any constumes lately. I made a super easy witch costume a few years ago. I was just thinking about sewing costumes tonight while I was watching "Somewhere in Time" with Jane Seymour & Christopher Reeve...gorgeous victorian dresses! Also, I like your "So much to sew...so little time!"...that is oh so true!
See you later...I'm going to check out your pics!

I think your quilt is beautiful! Sometimes the simpler patterns are the best to showcase the fabrics. I love the cherub fabric you chose for this project.

It would be so hard to leave those machines behind! Mine belonged to my grandmother, so it's sticking with me no matter where I go. I hope someday to be able to sew as beautifully as you do.
