more creative stuff

I've been sketching clothes I want, but can't make, due to lack of skill. I'm seriously considering trying to see if I can find someone in town to make some of these, and see how affordable it is.

On related notes:

Anyone have recommendations for sewing classes in Toronto? I'll have to learn how to use a pattern some day.

Also, anyone know where I can get opera gloves in men's sizes? How about how much a pair of riding boots should cost?

I don't have the cash to do any of this stuff right now, but my brain seems determined to think of stuff, so the rest of you get punished for it.

for the opera gloves, contact Malabar, somewhere down in the Yorkville Village area of Queen west.

for the boots, if you buy new, you can expect to pay in the neighbourhood of $300, but i recommend scanning ebay regularly; you may luck unto a good-condition used pair for under $100

on the topic of custom work, there are two people on my FList i can recommend. one is nocturnalia, the other is firefae. both are professional seamstresses/costumiers with heavy goth leanings.
