First Anniversary

Fun fabrics for the coming year
This week marks my first anniversary as a blogger.

The past year has been a great experience. Not only has it been exciting to share my research and sewing projects, I didn't realize how wonderful other costume bloggers are! It's sometimes amazing to stop and think how computers / the internet unite like-minded people.

My journey over the next year will include...
  • Reproducing a 1770s gown from the collections where I work. You might not believe it but...it has robings AND is front closing. Crazy, huh?
  • Completing my toddler's kit at the Crazy Concord Chicks blog, and researching / crafting toys. 
  • Trimming some new head ware. 
  • Researching 18th words / phrases and occasionally etymology...I will have weekly facebook posts with words / phrases from 18th century sources and a monthly recap post here. 
  • Historic site reviews...I'm a house museum junkie and will share more about my adventures and the cool collections that are hiding around the region.  
  • A mini moving sale.
  • And making more gowns.
