Weekend Link Love

The costumes are rolling along in the sewing room. The kids are all measured. The costumes are ordered. With lots of progress being made, a break is in order.

So grab your coffee, and settle in for some costumey link fun!


Rossetti Couture offers up an AMAZING selection of custom made costumes, bridal gowns, and formal wear. This woman is incredibly talented, and I want to be her when I grow up. Be sure to click through all of the galleries and look at the close ups. Trust me. It's worth it.

Time Life Magazine has made it's archive of photographs available on Google. There are some truly incredible, historic photos tucked away in this collection that are not to be missed.


Cheep Trims offers a great selection of appliques, trims and sewing notions at very good prices. They have a HUGE number of beaded and sequined yokes to choose to from, and lots of pretty ribbons and lace. Fun stuff!

Tutu.com is a good resource for absolutely EVERYTHING you could possibly need by way of tutu supplies. Patterns, books, fabric, hooks, you name it, they have it. The most impressive things they offer, by far, are their tutu seminars and work shops. If you (or your studio) have the funds available, this is the way to learn!


Ballet Talk For Dancers is not JUST for dancers. There are boards for parents of dancers, a pro shop (for costumers, tech crew, etc), adult dancers, teens, and more. It's a WEALTH of information, well organized, and on a well moderated board.

I'm pretty artsy, but unfortunately it doesn't carry over to sewing. But I love looking at the designs and different stuff. Fabric stores still excite me. lol

My husband says I'm not allowed to play in the fabric stores anymore.

Honestly though, I think even if you aren't a seamstress, those dresses at the Rossetti site just make you weak in the knees. :)
