We did go to a neat store called "Sacramento City Dry Goods".
It was neat! They have reproduction period clothing (1800's) and accessories, and patterns to make your own. I couldn't decide between a corset pattern or the corset DVD: How to Build and Fit a Victorian Corset... I thought, "I already have a few good corset patterns, but don't know what I'm doing...", so I bought the DVD.
It didn't work on my computer straight from the disc, so I had to decrypt it and watch it from the files stored on my hard drive. I don't know if it was just that disc itself, or the formatting, but watch out for that if you consider this dvd.
It is about 2 hours long, so I will post a review of it once I am done watching!
