We are excited to share with you images from our first ever photoshoot!
Inspired by the images of illustrator, writer, and historical clothing collector Tasha Tudor, this photoshoot highlights one of our most popular styles- The American South dress.

Tasha Tudor was born in Boston in 1915. A far cry from rural Southern Appalachia, Tudor’s fascination with past and commitment to a simpler life resonates regardless of geographic location. Tudor was an avid historical clothing collector who was often photographed wearing her original pieces. One can see the influence of her collection in her illustrations as the characters’ clothing is highly detailed and authentic.
Our American South dress was inspired by an original homespun gown from North Carolina dating to 1860. We have modified the design of our gown to encompass the every day silhouette of the American South from the 1840s through 1870. Our American South dress is a style that was consistent throughout rural America and is one of our most popular designs. It is shown over a chemise and one extra full petticoat and worn with an bib front apron.
Come take a stroll with us through Southern Tennessee as we gather walnuts mid 19th century style!
Thank you to the beautiful Jessica for modeling!
