I am enamoured with anything Victorian. After working in bridal for the past several years, the desire to get back into Victorian has re-emerged. And with the popularity of Steampunk, I can be even more creative.

I found http://www.fabricandart.com/HTML_files/Fabrics/dress%20silk.html. They are a small company with beautiful fabric. I've been happy with the amazing quality each time I have ordered and the prices are great.

Re: Book Giveaway: "THE VICTORIAN TAILOR" by Jason Maclochlainn

From the time I first read Country Bunny and saw the bunny in a Victorian bustle dress I have wanted to wear Victorian Clothes. I started sewing at 12 and in my 20's I made my first Victorian dress. It was terrible. I've made leaps and bounds since then and now have a sewing business, but first love is Victorian attire. I have recently begun sewing for a gentleman who does Civil War events, and he has many friends who also need clothing for re-enacting. I have a reference library for my work, but it is sadly lacking in information about men's wear and tailoring. This book would be a great benefit to my business.
