Re: Reliable sources that don't break the bank

*waves* Ooh which group do you plan to join? I've been meaning to do 18thC for ages but I'm finding it really hard balancing hobby with need for money (weekend job ;( ) and uni work :( Can't help with patterns I'm afraid as I make my own... but for construction tips you could see if this is helpful....

Re: Reliable sources that don't break the bank

Hi folks I'm looking around for some decent reliable sources for 18th Century womens clothing. I've been given a few recommendations, but I just can't seem to find the right things. Does anyone know of anywhere I can find such things? I'm also in need of a suitable set of stays, as I've been borrow...

Re: Discounts for students

Student cards should have a photo on them and the logo of the university, I think they all have the NUS logo on the back too, expiry date, course name etc (:

Re: Where do you attach your points?

To be honest I think that on tight fitting items where there are no point holes the most likely option is that they are pointing to eyelets inside the garment, i.e. there is a strip in a flap inside the garment that the points go through. I have zero evidence for this however... Not sure how useful...

Re: Points

I don't know... like I said, it's not something I've actually thought about before! I have no idea about the life span of a wool point vs a silk point but for daily hard wear mightn't it be forgiveable that wool points might not survive? They do get pretty hard use. Also, for things like lacing the ...

Re: Points

Sorry for being late... was just intruiged by this. 1) Most likely silk; less likely, but possible, dyed wool. at what kind of social level would one be to use disposable income to buy silk rather than woollen points? Are they just one of those petty excesses which you hope everyone notices when wea...

Re: a 1650 gown

I'll try and find out some more about the term! I particularly like the way you interlined the skirt, I always love the way the folds fall in the paintings despite the lightness of the silk. Makes sense interlining it, especially with the illusory cartridge hips, ha ha :D BTW I found some images of ...
