Thank you for posting this article. I really enjoyed each and everyone's views on why the Victorian revival in fashion is trending now. I also am enjoying all the new links to blogs and sites that the article introduced. Thank you again!
I found your story on Utube and loved it. I think your lifestyle is wonderful. As for those who have the gull to tell you that you are oppressing all women, tell them that you are liberated by your corset as they have to run to the bathroom and stick their fingers down their throats to accomplish the same. And remember that these are the same women that will attack other women that they deem not living what they believe is up to their standards. Which is basically their 'double standards'. These women complain about pollution, yet use disposable diapers (that's when they are killing their babies to stop the quote 'overpopulation problem' as they fight to keep mass murderers alive), paper towels, wipes, and I could go on and on. These are the people that sent our jobs overseas to help other Countries live better. Have you seen a picture of China lately? People have to wear mask to go outside because the air is so foul. I guess these intelligent people haven't realized that China is on the same planet as we are. But, I digress. All I am saying asking is how do you retrain yourself from laughing in their faces. I applaud you for living the way you want to live. I have loved the crafts and styles of earlier times since I saw a woman weaving cloth. When my children were small, I made their bread, butter, and jams as well as canned their fruits and vegetables. I used cloth diapers and found it no harder than using disposable. And yes, I hung them out to dry as well. Nothing smells sweeter than sheets dried on the line. I may own a Serger, but I still love my pedal powered Singer. I guess what I am saying is that I have had a toe in both worlds for decades. Stay who you are as you are more woman than those who claim that you are oppressing them ever will be. After all, you are being who you want to be.
