Ooh, lovely! This will get posted on Friday :)
i love the back of regency dresses! http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i31/costumersguide/Becoming%20Jane/jane31hiresgu8.jpg http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i31/costumersguide/Becoming%20Jane/jane33hiresgl1.jpg Andra (sorry for flooding your formspring)
Aren’t they just lovely? It’s completely fine, I adore knowing that others are enjoying my costuming blog as much as I am! I love your feedback :)
oh btw here’s what i found: the tudors http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i31/costumersguide/The%20Tudors3/007.jpg becoming jane http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i31/costumersguide/Becoming%20Jane/03.jpg Andra
Wonderful! I’m setting aside all the photos you’ve submitted for Film Friday :D
It’s great to find someone who likes history of fashion as much as i do (if not more)! Do you plan on pursuing a career in this field? Andra
Isn’t it just the greatest thing to find someone who enjoys something as avidly as yourself? I do not plan to pursue a career in historical fashion, as much as I’d like to, because the options in that field are so few. Also, I am an author first and a seamstress second! I adore costuming, but I think I’d prefer to be selfish and keep it as something that I just do for myself, rather than as a job. :)
I was wondering if you would be interested in having another specialized day (like there is Film Friday). My ideas were costumers’ recreations, accessories, or children’s and men’s fashions. If you have another, go ahead and let me know! After I get a general idea of what everyone is interested in, I’ll post another question with only a few options. Remember, I want you all to love this blog, so please give me your feedback! If you have anything more to say, tell me in my ask box or my formspring! Also, as usual, you can SUBMIT your favourite historical costumes.
So what do you think?

i’m not sure if this has been asked before, but do you know of any careers related to historical fashion? thank you!
I have answered this one before! Hooray for copy/paste :D
“The only ones that I could think of off of my head are a costumer designer for movies - and you just hope that you work on historical movies - and working in a museum. The latter would be an amazing job, I think! They both would be :D”

Ooh, lovely! I will post that next Film Friday :)
why dont you post much Marie Antoinette stuff?
If you mean actual pictures from the movie, that’s because I only post film costumes on Fridays - hence, Film Friday! If you mean photos of clothing and paintings from that era, it’s because I get distracted by other eras and forget about some for a while - just give me a gentle nudge that you’re wishing for a certain period (anyone, go ahead and do this!) and I shall oblige :)
How do you have time to sew so much? You make really great things.
I actually go to a very special, alternative high school. Instead of going to classes every day, and with an entire room of students, I have my classes one-on-one with my professors once a week. They give me five hours of work for the rest of the week, which constitutes having “class” on the days I don’t go to school. I only attend school three days a week, so I have lots of free time :) And thank you so much, I really do appreciate it! I like to think that I have gained more skills with all the time I have been given :)
