....no, but a candidate perhaps. My particular gripe was one of a series of overdyed 1970's nylon edwardian-style wedding dresses described as such - plus 'goth'. My other gripe is the word 'corset dress' for a dress fitted by drawstrings to save on actually fitting the garment properley. Nor is st...

The clue to this thread is those ebay (et al) offerings that claim to be medivil, Tudor, colonial and Victorian all at once. Ignoring not only the differences in period, but worlds apart in construction, fabric, methods and meanings of wear.......some are very dolly to look at and you would want to...

Heresay is no good, everyone has been going about saying they heard from their 'mothers best friends uncle that Chris is....'

Rubbish!

All this idle speculation is pointless..... Chris was at Detling, you could have talked to him then.

Re: "Victorian" dress pattern

I'd like to have a bash at making a mid to late nineteenth century dress for a "Victorian Christmas" event in December. Does anyone know of a reliable/accurate ready-made pattern? I've got Norah Waugh etc etc but I'm not going to have time to do the whole drafting and tinkering thing. Are the Simpl...
