New Blog!

So I don’t know how many of you know this, but I’m a costumer, and avid home sewer, and I actually make stuff all the time!

So if anyone’s interested in that kind of thing, I started a blog for it:

The Future for Foundations and Wardrobe | Foundations Revealed

I’d like to encourage everyone in the corset community, especially those involved in any way in corset making, to read this article. Foundations Revealed has been a pillar of the community over the last few years and unfortunately their future looks grim. 

They need more members in order to continue to provide this community with the amazing resources that they have over the past years. If you’re like me and have considered signing up in the past but haven’t gotten around to it, I urge you to sign up for a membership now! The resources are amazing and everyone I know with a membership thinks that it’s worth every penny and more. 

Please help save a great resource in our community, either by signing up, spreading the word, or both! <3

Reblogging this on my personal to spread the word. Not only is Foundations Revealed an amazing corsetry resource, but Your Wardrobe Unlock’d is a great historical costuming resource! 

AAAAA YOU CAN’T LET FOUNDATIONS REVEALED GO UNDER BEFORE I CAN AFFORD A MEMBERSHIP EVERYONE SUPPORT THIS SITE BEFORE I CRY

Friend you are aware they give a 50% student discount which means that if you just want FR your first month would be like $3 and every month after would be like $6 right?

"Most professional wardrobe shops have cork-top tables for pattern drafting, so you can pin into them. We don’t have cork tables. What we have are pushpins, and hammers."

Omg can you imagine if they sold patterns like this? Like official sewing patterns of official dress designs? The more I think about it the more I think I need it. Good thing I’m learning pattern drafting.
