Hello, and welcome to the new and improved Diary of an Overly Ambitious Costumer! This blog will be an attempt to get back into the realm of historical costuming. I am endeavoring to make this a resource for aspiring costumers. This will never be 100% accurate. I have too much to learn myself for that ever to happen. But, I hope it will encourage those of you who feel you don't know enough to take the plunge and finally make that gorgeous gown you have been dreaming about. I am self taught. And if I can put together a well researched mid-Victorian dress that doesn't fall apart on the ballroom dance floor, then you can too!
