I’m a historical costumer interested in nearly every era of costume. I am slowly acquiring a fabric stash to match that.

In real life, I’m a Privacy Analyst at a health tech startup in Silicon Valley.

As is traditional for seamstresses, I have two kitty companions who take great joy in helping me out, by sitting on my fabric whenever possible.

    Molly – after talking to you yesterday about Regency dresses, this arrived in my mailbox today: how to make a Regency era turban! A lifesaver for people like me with short hair 🙂

    Molly – let me know if you’d like to hit a couple of thrift stores to shop for a 1930s dress (I heard your previous option fell through). We could to 2 nearby after your done with your workday at Google…

      I just got a cheapo dress on ebay which I think will suffice – if it doesn’t fit I may take you up on that for next week though 🙂 What thrift stores are good for this for future reference?

  3. Joan says:

    Good for you and Ebay! Palo Alto Goodwill or Mtn. View Goodwill are recommend because they are nearby. The REALLY good ones (because they are huge warehouses) are in the east bay.

    Molly, I really like your blog, so much that I have nominated it for an award here: https://sewingempire.wordpress.com/2015/06/21/the-sisterhood-of-the-world-bloggers-award/ 🙂

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I just fell down a rabbit hole of all your past entries and I love your work. That Shindig dress is just amazing. Are you local to the Bay Area? Hope to see you at a con sometime!
