1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help finding late-Victorian domestic servant dress on: August 22, 2008 11:20:33 PM
Hi all, I've been having a bit of trouble and thought I'd ask for help. I'm doing a production of A Doll's House and am looking for images regarding female domestic servants from the late Victorian Era (specifically circa 1880, but images around this time would be greatly appreciated). I know it's perhaps a bit of an odd request, but this seemed like a good place to look for assistance. Thanks for the help if you can, and thanks for reading anyway if you can't! :0)
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Puffy/poof sleeves? on: September 29, 2006 11:16:13 AM
Hello all, I'm having a bit of a time and was hoping some of you could help me.

while not a novice to sewing, I'm tackling something I've never encountered before with my halloween costume - puffed sleeves. the problem isn't the actual construction (I've already got that covered), but I'm having a hard time figuring out how to give them the fullness that i need. they are very large, so they won't do it on their own, but kind of just flop over. this isn't the costume I'm making but it's a good visual reference as to what I'm talking about - Simplicity 4078 and 4156. any suggestions on how to give my sleeves more poof?

ps, sorry for lack of link and/or images, first post, haven't quite firgued it all out yet.
