My first attempt at filming a bit of the process of making one of my costumes! I wasn't able to capture every step, but I did my best to turn the camera on every time I was sewing at my desk. If you would like to see photos and written explanations of the step by step process, check out my blog: http://doxiequeen1.wordpress.com/ Music from Musopen, performed by Paul Pitman, Beethoven's Sonata No.15 in D Major Pastoral, Op.28 II Andante

I know the use of a sewing machine is easier, but your tenacity to hand stitch is incredible. I think hand sewn items tend to look a lot prettier and you can really appreciate the work gone into a garment or stitched piece of art, there is of course value in a sewing machine and it's an incredible feet of technology, but I just love your talent and people before you who have done the same. Well done.

OMG, hand sewn eyelets! You're my hero! You mentioned that you're just now looking at your sewing machine. Oh, my darling, don't! What you are doing, they way you are doing it makes your garments Haute Couture!! Your customers will love you for it. In the sewing realm, I think we could be soul mates? 🙂☺️

It's absolutely incredible how prolific you are - how much you can accomplish, especially when so much is done by hand. Huzzah and vivat!

Just a note? Try to find natural fibers like Linen, Silk and Wool, and cotton Velvet or Velveteen breathes better than the plastic that is being used in this costume.
Lorraine Marcketta (2 years ago)
Your talent is absolutely amazing! For someone so young to envision and create such beautiful costume is wonderful!
Gina Lekasdottir (2 years ago)

@Monie Bryan would you care to share the names of any of these websites? ;)
Monie Bryan (2 years ago)
She must have draped it and made a mock up which she did not show, there are some wonderful sites on how to do this making the pattern.

I appreciate the hand sewing, watching it was entrancing with your fair white skin, long sleek fingers against the lovely red velvet fabric. I am new to sewing and making a Landsknecht/Womens Cranach 15th 16th century Saxon gown and looking for inspiration. I really like seeing your close up footage, thanks for taking the time to show that as I am so new to this craft. I would say this dress would look more beautiful in person.

It is a joy to see such beautiful work and dedication to this art!  I worked in a costume shop for many years (the real thing, in an opera house), and I have done much beading for personal projects.  Your technique is very good!  This project is beautiful, and i look forward to seeing more!

Aalihte If you're good at hand sewing or quilting, a lot of times your work will last longer and be better quality then machine work.
Aalihte (2 years ago)
It's so cool to see that folks still do hand stitching :) sewing machines intimidate me so Ive always sewn by hand..and gotten made fun of. I'm 40 now..and I just cracked open the manual on one of my sewing machines...
kreakyfrog (5 years ago)
