New pattern! https://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m7763
Thank you guys so much for all the support on my previous announcement video (and the pattern itself) I appreciate it so so much!
I hope you guys like this one too, and hearing a bit about my design logic :) There are more patterns to come, too, so keep an eye out!
Wrong period, similar concept for self drafting one:
The fabrics for this dress were purchased from fabric mart.
The gauze was from jo-anns, and the jacquard ribbon was NOS purchased on etsy.
Some of the references used during design (there were lots more):
Stockings were from sockdreams
Rings were from ebay

I'm currently using your M7885 (modified a little) to make a 2015-edition Cinderella ballgown! The bodice is the PERFECT shape! I also purchased this one and will modify it to use for a Rapunzel costume! It's so helpful to have a historically accurate starting point (most commercial patterns designed for Disney costuming/cosplay are extremely subpar). Love love love it, and congrats on your success!
I bought your pattern for a cosplay of mine and I love love love it!!! Although I used 4 times the amount of boning recommended, graded the pattern to accomodate a longer torso and since Im male and I crossplay female characters, and I wore a petticoat to make the skirt more poofy. I love your works! Keep up the good work.
Omg I can’t believe your the girl that does the McCall historical patterns I’m so overwhelmed I’m definitely picking up your designs and I’m also someone who loves the 1950s 😂😂 I’m so happy for you and I definitely would love to follow you on Instagram if possible and you are just so incredible you are a big inspiration to me and many others and I for one am extremely thankful 😘😘
I just bought this pattern last week for the poofy sleeves to add to my cosplay and was looking for video references on historical costumes and stumbled across your video. Its cool seeing the thought process behind the pattern and the person who made it. So cool hope you get to make more.
Could you do a video covering different shapes of puff sleeves and how to altar the pattern shape to create them? Your videos are so helpful and I can't seem to find much of that type of information around.
Hello I picked up your pattern at Joannes I’m try to make a dress similar to the red and gold dress lucrezia Borgia . Do you have any advice to make sleeves and a bodice like her dress? Here is a link to the picture https://pin.it/oudcwawhvrbpad
I am going to be buying this pattern this weekend and I wondered - will you be doing sewing tutorials for these the way Mimi G does for her sewing patterns? That would be so great! Also, I'm not sure what you have next but I am hoping you and McCall's will consider your Halloween Redingote as a costume pattern. That would be boss! :-)
I tried to buy your other pattern, and it only goes to size 18- which is my commercial size and very definitely not my pattern size :( I'm sad because it's nearly perfect for a cosplay I have planned. Do you or anyone have any tips for expanding a pattern?
It occurred to me when I viewed the amazing heavy layers & fabrics of the clothing from the Renaissance in pictures at museums or in art books that this was needed because there was no central heating. They lived in drafty palaces & homes so all those layers made life uncomfortable during the winter months. But I am unsure how they survived dressed like this during the summer time. Historical research indicates that Europe actually went through a mini-ice age for a few hundred years so even the summer temperatures may have been cooler during that time period.
I bought the Victorian pattern but I'm not planning on utilising it just yet. I got it for about 3.99 because I was shopping on their website on a whim and I just happened to have found they were having a costume sale. I'm taking my time getting all of the materials so that I can wear it to my local anime convention next year.
this was great. I may go buy this pattern, i've been wanting something like this to make but never had confidence in what I was buying, but with your explanations of everything I believe it will be an enjoyable experience.
You do such a thorough job! I just ordered both patterns in the biggest sizes I could get. I'd love to see you do plus size versions. I'm a 3X, and I mean a REAL 3X, which I think translates to a size 26 in the skinny world. I'm Scottish, with a bagpipe playing son, and love attending Highland Games. I think tartan (plaid) straight across my fat rear end is something nobody wants to see. I've been looking for a maxi-skirt length dress where the plaid is set diagonally and yours is first pattern that might could do it for me. I love my tartan and have yards and yards of it. On the other hand, if I can't figure out how to upsize the pattern, I'll give up on using my tartan (at least for the skirt part) and choose another fabric to make the 2nd pattern that coordinates with my tartan. Maybe use the tartan for the edging. I'm a leatherworker and a historical costume maker too, but am not anal about making it historically accurate. If it looks good and looks true to the period, I'll go with it. I'm all for modern conveniences! lol! I vend at events like Renfairs and Highland Games and have to be in costume for many of them, even though I really prefer a t-shirt and jeans. So finding a somewhat historically looking costume that doesn't make me look like the broad side of a barn, has been challenging. I love to make costumes for other people, but I don't love to wear them, especially when I'm on my feet all day vending at these events.
I went to a really interesting exhibit at the Metropolitan Art Museum in New York yesterday called Visitors to Versailles. The exhibit included some incredibly well preserved 18th century outfits. If you get a chance, I would highly recommend going.
I love it! Thanks so much for the pattern and offering so much insight into your process. Is there any chance you might do a tutorial on how alter the pattern for lace-on sleeves, using the flat version without the poof?
This is awesome! My sewing skills are at about intermediate-beginner level...I have grand aspirations to make something amazing like this, but I have curves and I'm not confident on fit and alterations, and am concerned I'll just spend a ton of time and money on something that won't fit. :( I know you typically draft your own patterns, but would you ever consider doing a tutorial on pattern alterations? You could invite a "guest" that has a different body type than you, and could recreate the dress using this pattern and making the necessary adjustments. I know alterations and pattern fitting are technically a whole different skill set, but it would be super helpful! Or maybe someone can recommend a YouTuber that does something similar?
I rarely write on these boards, cause I watch from my Apple TV, but your channel is the first one I go to each week to see if you have any new videos and I love all your costumes and will definitely ad this pattern to my collection
just wanted to say, i love hearing you talk about your costume! you sound so happy to talk about it when describing it, i can hear your smile! this is a beautiful design and an absolutely gorgeous finished product 💕
We DO love outtakes, no lie.
I really appreciated hearing the thought process behind why you made the design choices you did, I hope you will continue to do that for future designs! It was nice to hear that you considered both the needs of the customers, and what is already on the market.
I'd love to see more Renaissance patterns in stores and im so glad you put one out! I've been looking around for some for the ren faire in Las Vegas but havent had much luck! Love love love your videos!
Congratulations, Angela! This is amazing. Also thrilled to hear about the fantastic sales of the first one. YAY! I still haven't gotten my copy yet. I will though. I think it will make my process of making museum clothing af lot easier. Allthough I will have to cut down on the prettyness a bit compared to your sample dress - allthough i loooove that one! <3 It's just... I'm only a village weaver, an no way I would have looked that much like a fine lady. ;) The silhouette however is probably just right. I'll call a shop right away and have them order it for me! YES! :) Good job, Girl. Proud of you. Keep it up! :)
People DO love outtakes! LOL I'm so very happy for you! I've been hoping for YEARS to see some of your patterns in stores, since your blog was reddish and on blogspot, long before I found you you on youtube. The first time I read your blog, the newest piece you had up was the short forest fairy dress, if tells you anything about how long I've been stalking your work. :) (Not in a creepy way, I promise!)
I am so happy! I finally had money to buy your first pattern and now I can buy both your patterns at once and they were discounted at that! I cannot wait to start sewing but now I will have to choose which to do first :') I love the way you keep in mind how the costumes have to be put on without help and costs effective sewing! I have been in love with your costuming for years and creating a costume with your pattern is such a dream :) anyway! keep your awesome work going!
I'm so happy for you I watched this video twice! I love the costume, and am seriously considering purchasing it, but ... I'm a size 36DD/34E ... How exactly would I even begin to make this fit? (I have this problem often, any input would be nice :)
Anunciado durante a Gamescom 2017, uma das maiores feiras de videogame do mundo, o remake de Secret of Mana é, desde o início, um projeto pensado para agradar aos fãs de longa data e atrair jogadores novatos com um gameplay mais acessível.
Não se engane: a versão 2018 de Secret of Mana está mais para uma recriação do que uma mera remasterização com pequeno ajustes gráficos. O que temos aqui é um jogo completamente atualizado, com personagens redesenhados que ganharam nova vida graças à estética cartunesca.
Se, por um lado, as mudanças visuais foram projetadas para atrair novatos, por outro, algumas pessoas podem torcer o nariz pela simplicidade da nova abordagem - especialmente no que diz respeito aos cenários e criaturas do mundo.
Os cenários coloridos, por exemplo, ainda que estejam bem representados, trazem pouca variedade e deixam game com cara de “jogo de celular”. Isso fica mais evidente pela estrutura do game, já que muitas áreas estão completamente vazias e monótonas. Nesse quesito, Secret of Mana não tem vantagem em ter o fator nostalgia a seu favor.
O remake utiliza a clássica perspectiva de visão aérea, com a câmera posicionada acima dos personagens. É possível arrastar as bordas da tela manualmente para ter uma visão mais ampla do ambiente, o que é bastante útil para momentos de exploração.
O brilho da era noventista, mas com ressalvas.
Antes de tudo, é importante ressaltar que não há legendas em português, então o melhor a fazer é jogar com textos em inglês. A história continua sendo o ponto mais alto de Secret of Mana e, novamente, coloca o jogador no controle de três adoráveis personagens: Randi, Primm e Popoi - é possível jogar em modo cooperativo local para até três usuários.
O objetivo do grupo é lutar contra um império traidor ao mesmo tempo em que tenta recuperar o poder da Mana para restaurar a paz. O grande problema é que, embora os gráficos estejam atualizados, as animações ficaram presas ao passado. Em vez de despertar o sentimento de nostalgia, a falta de capricho passa a impressão de que o remake foi feito às pressas.
A jogabilidade à la Zelda foi aprimorada e permite desferir ataques de qualquer ângulo. Os inimigos também demonstram mais inteligência, uma vez que agora eles têm a opção de atacar a partir de qualquer ponto do cenário.
Ainda que a movimentação esteja mais fluida, parece haver algum problema técnico relacionado ao impacto dos golpes. Isso porque há momentos em que o personagem simplesmente não acerta o ataque, mesmo posicionado a uma distância razoável do oponente.
Além disso, a interface dos menus ficou bem aquém do esperado, com abas confusas e muito mal posicionadas. Há, no entanto, uma opção de mapear os itens essenciais nos botões do joystick ou teclado, o que facilita muito a organização na hora de combates mais exigentes.
O remake de Secret of Mana mantém a essência da pérola dos RPGs de ação dos anos 90, mas comete muitos deslizes ao tentar mexer em time que está ganhando. Menus engessados, sistema de combate com problemas técnicos e animações presas ao passado impedem o relançamento de ser a experiência definitiva, apesar de que possa valer para quem nunca experimentou o jogo original.
