Looking for a historical pattern source?


Well, here’s a website that has my attention!  http://www.lavoltapress.com/  I especially like the one entitled Fashions of the Gilded Age.  Already I am starting to think of ways that I could put together a costuming event that would benefit from my sewing skills.  Visions of horse-drawn carriages, bustles, men in top hats, a crackling fire – – mmmmmm!

Does anyone have an example to share of a pattern they’ve made from this company?  Sounds like it might be a cool source of patterns for a variety of garments, men’s clothing included.

Lady Victoria and husband Sir Harry of Essex (London), reside these days in picturesque Seattle, Washington USA. They interact with a number of vintage or antique groups, including the historical costuming group Somewhere in Time, Unlimited. Come, enjoy an afternoon with Lady V and Sir Harry! www.CostumingInSeattle.com
