New Here!

Hi I’m kristina! You can call me Krissy or Tina, or Kris.  I’m a theatre tech student who loves to sew and going to a costume design school in the fall( Fanshawe College) to learn even more about tailoring and historical clothing, millinery, and all that sorts. I’m still getting used to wordpress, I really have no idea how to do this picture thing.

I have one dress from Butterwick,  B5882- Done in cottons, its fully boned, lined, complete with a waist stay. It’s comfortable and fit perfectly in a size 12 generally I cut a size 14.  The pleating was the first pleating I have ever done and was a learning experience.  It was the first 50’s dress I ever made and I love it to death. I wore it to my schools open house and even though you can’t see it I does have a crinoline underneath it!

The blue dress is Vintage vogue- V-8874

It was fun to make and relatively easy.  I missed up the hem! The short pattern was to my ankle! and there was a longer version! I’m only 5’4.  So I tried to shorten it and in majority of it was even, only to find out when i put it on the right front went up! So to solve that problem I just sewed the matching green ribbon to cover up my mistake.

The third dress is not so vintage, but a costume I made for Toronto’s Fan expo! Yes I’m from Canada.  Its Sailor Moon/Princess Serenity!  I added it since it has a slight Regency Flair to it. It’s made out of tessa satin, georgette, and chiffon in the back. I had to hand sew all those lovely pearls, it was lovely.

I have a actual regency pattern in the mail with lovely fabric waiting for it.  I have also a corset in the works slightly french revolution.

I am a graduate of theatre production, who taught herself to sew and realized she had a dream of working in a theatre wardrobe. I am going to Costume design school in the fall, to further my experience of learning of how to make more historical clothing.
