The lovely Dreamstress gifted me with the Amadeus Award “for embodying the spirit of the 18th century.” I’m very flattered, especially since I’m just starting out in 18th century costuming. But I am very excited to be able to pass this award on to five bloggers who have helped me in learning about 18th century costume.
In no particular order:
2) Jenni of Historically Dressed. (She also blogs on livejournal, but the journal is friends locked.) She has carefully documented her sewing projects, meaning that her site is a great resource for costumers just starting out with 18th c. Her Hello Kitty Dress is one of the best “twisted historicals” ever.
5) Katherine of Katherine’s Dress Site and livejournal. She’s received tons of accolades from other costumers (much deserved), but I just had to throw my appreciation in the mix. Her website is such a great resource, including detailed construction information and a wealth of different projects.
