Long Time Missing and Lost, Lost Coast is Back

Sorry that we have been unavailable for over 6 months, the business was put on hold while I started teaching full time, of course had to move, and then pack up the business in a temporary hold pattern.

We are slowly opening stock and getting things back available for all of you costume creators. We have started getting product back on Etsy and eBay has some clearance. The main store will be on hold for a bit longer.

Just Can’t Get Enough of the Teens

Foundations were very important during this period. While women had less bulk in their clothing, an frills became small and lingerie like on outerwear, the corset shape went through it’s last big hurray. Indeed when we came to the 1920s, the corset migrated to what were know as girdles and true bras showing up in the 1930s.

To help you celebrate your viewing loss of Downton Abbey and Mr. Selfridge for another season, you may whip up some costumes and watch the DVD or stream repeats at your leisure with friends.
