I'm trying to connect with other historical sewers in my area, and have spent some time looking through The Dreamstress' website. She lives in my area of Wellington and so far I have not been able to get in contact with her - there doesn't seem to be many in our little New Zealand, so I have discovered!
Do you see anything familiar about the below two links??
This one by The Dreamstress
and this one? my first post I think (scroll to near the bottom)
Yes, my husband and I featured in her blog nearly 10 years ago, LONG before I even considered actually sewing a dress like it. We are also in the third picture as well - I can easily spot my husband with his overgrown red curls and gold coat!
I certainly hope that we are considered "Gorgeous, inspiration-worthy rental costumes" rather than the ones she had to "refrain from being a costume snark"! I know we were certainly "awkward and self-conscious of how to act"! Yep, Leimomi has a very good understanding of how it is for us debutants.
It certainly gives one a funny feeling when you open a page and there you are!
