Introducing The New Portfolio Page!

If you’ve looked along the top of this blog, right above that lacey petticoat picture, you have probably noticed the different pages listed there. Hopefully, you’ve even clicked on one or two of them and conducted a little bit of exploration! Well, as of today, a new page has been added: The Portfolio Page.

“What is the Portfolio Page?”   Well, click and see!

If you’re like me and you want to know before you click, here are the details: The Portfolio Page is a gallery of my past work with links to the blog posts about the different garments. As I continue to construct new things, I’ll add them to the page so that it constantly reflects a quick-view of my work. The Portfolio Page also contains a link to my professional portfolio, for those of you who are interested in learning more about me or seeing my expanded, professional work.

My professional portfolio:

Why do I have a separate professional portfolio? Well, this blog is a collection of posts relating to my personal hobby of historic costuming; however, as a professional costumer there are many other things that I make and shows that I work on. These are things that I have chosen to keep separate from my personal blog for many reasons, but they are still representative of my costuming skills. The new Portfolio Page of this blog is a great opportunity for me to include all my personal projects that show a high quality of work but which do not belong on my professional portfolio! So go, visit my Portfolio Page and then take a little trip to see my professional portfolio, too!

In fact, here’s a taste! Here are just a few things that are available to be viewed on my professional portfolio, but which are not included on this blog.

1930s bias Vionnet evening gown in silk crepe back satin with matching underwear set.

c. 1940 three piece suit.

1627 wool doublet and breeches.

One of my hand quilted projects: a Shoofly pattern lap quilt.

    Great addition to a great blog! Hope to find new Regency garments on your portfolio section soon 😉

    Happy sewing,

    • Thank you! There are a few Regency garments in the planning stages, but I do have a whole host of 1895-1905 things to complete and post about first… 🙂 Thanks for your gentle encouragement to return to Regency!

  2. Hi there, Dr. Q. Beautiful. So glad you’ve made this delineation in your marvelous work.
