About the Seamstress

 


 
I’m a historic costumer who dabbles in many different eras, but my true love is the late 18th century and early 19th century. For me, the process of creating and researching the clothing is just as rewarding as the wearing. Creating historic clothing blends my love of history, literature, and fashion, providing artistic expression and escapism in one.

I live with my husband who encourages my fabric hoarding habits, and my furry children (aka cats), who christen each costume with a fine patina of cat hair. I have a B.A. in English Literature and still can’t decide what I want to be when I grow up.
