When I first started this blog, I was an unemployed costumer attempting to create period gowns and costumes with very limited means. Although now employed, I still try to be as thrifty as possible. I am still "The Broke Costumer"!

In addition to posts about the outfits I make on a budget, this blog includes short research articles on fashion, history, accessories, styles, or whatever interests me at the moment.

I hope you enjoy my journey into the land of inexpensive costuming and short articles.

Happy Holidays!

I wish everyone a joyous holiday season, and a prosperous New Year!  I will begin sewing again in January.

  1. Why thank you! I am with two very talented ladies here.

  2. Yes, we are! Cindy, that is Robin from the Whaley House. You can meet her at my tea.
