Tiker, sounds really interesting to me! I would like to learn to make my own period costumes for interpretation work. It deals w/ cloting from 1830's to Civil War times near Springfield, IL. Old Salem Village where Abraham Lincoln lived. There are classes coming up soon.
I also like going to the Renaissance Faires..but haven't made a costume for that...just a skirt for practice. Do you use patterns or have to draft them yourself?? What state is it that you are studying from, if I may ask. Just sounds like something I would really like to sink my teeth into!!
Thanks, for sharing.
I mostly draft patterns myself but also use bought patterns, it depends on what is most convenient at the time...
I study in Sweden unfortunately XD not USA
so no state for me ^^
But i believe that there should be similar educations in USA (in colleges atleast, we have checked it out from my school and i might go there when i graduate
