Inspiring Young Costumers

Today I'd like to introduce you to two wonderfully inspirational costumers. About a year ago I stumbled on the work of Katie Jacobs of www.katiejacobs.com. Her costumes reproduce historical clothing from the 1700s to early 1900s. I love checking her site for the most recent creations. It inspires me to no end! Wish I lived near this girl! It's so fun to see other young costumers creating such stunning reproductions.

Through Katie's site I learned of her friend, Gwendolyn Basala. I saw this 1820s dress that she reproduced from an original (recognize it?) and I was blown away. How awesome is this dress?!? Please stop by her sites to see her many other lovely creations!
