Hello and welcome to A Dress Makers Diary! After lots of frustrating time spent trying to find pictures of this dress or that I decided to start this blog in an attempt to document the dresses that I have made. I am doing this mostly for myself and also for a few family members and friends who put up with this strange hobby of mine. As a brief recap, I have been sewing since I was quite young, starting with doll clothes and, as I got older, clothing for myself. I went through a quilt making phase for a few years but that soon got boring and too repetitive for me. And then, about five years ago, wa la! I discovered Historic Costuming and the insanity began!
