A couple of grown-ups who play dress-up (or at least make things to dress up in).
Historically inspired, fantasy, cosplay and vintage; we make whatever inspires us. Robin is lean and elegant, a thoughtful perfectionist. Lisa prefers to make rather than to wear, finding inspiration in the oddest places. We are retired and sew whenever we aren't traveling.

Ren fabric choices - Robin
Haven't found the proper fabric yet for the fore panel for the Renaissance skirt. I've been searching online embroidery sites to see what's around, because Queen Elizabeth had this fantastic one embroidered for her by Bess of Harwick and I thought I'd see what I could replicate. So far, nothing for sale makes me fall in love. Here are two close ones, though, and I'll use them as jumping off points. Maybe I'll machine embroidery the entire fore panel and embellish it with pearls. No hurry on this one though.
I have an embroidery machine, but my software for downloading from the internet is so outdated that I had to buy new stuff. Waaah!
