    Thanks! Yes, a Victorian outfit is quite a challenge, but I’m ready and willing to take it on :) Luckily the patterns from Truly Victorian are very fun and relatively easy to work with ;)

    mentha commented on the project My Zoe dress

    Thank you! I just love this dress! Making it was so much fun as well. I may have made it a liiitle bit too short, but hey, with a pair of leggings and no bending forward, who cares, right?

    My very first corset, created mainly as a beginning to Victorian costuming but also because I love corsets and I’ve been dreaming of making a corset for a very long time.
