I’ve added a new category under resources for research type material online. This category currently includes two YouTube videos on dressing for the Regency era using modern thrift store finds as well as how to get dressed in 1805. Very useful for the beginning or on-a-deadline/budget costumer. Much of the YouTube sphere has such bouncy, wobbly, flash & pan videography that it makes me a bit motion sick–even the commercially produced videos do that. I guess in an effort to look more “homegrown”. Did we learn nothing from the early 1990s video craze? Thankfully, costumers seem to be a more logical and quality oriented lot and I found their productions to be generally stable and fun to watch!
