Historically Bent Costuming

Welcome to rabid_bookwyrm's sewing and costuming diary. I do historical costuming and modern costuming and clothing, and the only reason this is a community rather than a journal is that I'm too lazy to log myself in and out of two different journals. I'm in to nearly everything from about 1400 on up, skipping almost the entirety of the 17th century and parts of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

For the last few years I've been at Reed, which took up pretty much all of my spare time. Now that I've graduated, I'm looking forward to actually acting on some of those hopeful plans and stashed yards.

Unlike in my ordinary journal, I try to keep every entry tagged appropriately. If you're looking for a particular item the tags should be a good shot. a: accessories, b: bodice, d: dress, p: pants, q: quilt, s: skirt, u: underwear.

Ok, I get the occasional request, so I'd like to save everyone some time and make it very clear: this is a "community" only because I don't want to sign in and out of different usernames. If you're looking for a sewing community, I highly recomment dressdiaries and corsetmakers.
