Earlier this year we launched a new design- our Anne dress– a late 1830s/early 1840s transitional style gown. This dress is based off an original in the Tasha Tudor Collection and is a longer sleeve version of our Brooks dress.
We quickly received our first commission for a custom made version of this gown. It is made up in an authentic reproduction 1830s era moss green cotton print. This dress is headed to Historic Brattonsville for one of their new volunteer interpreters!
Hi! My name is Susan and I am a historian, seamstress, teacher, mother, and wife. My passion for history has manifested itself in the art of recreating clothing from different periods of time. Growing up in the American South, I am heavily schooled in the art of recreating clothing from the 19th century. After nearly a decade of immersing myself primarily in the Victorian period, I found the need to branch out and explore other periods of time. However, it is my connection with the American South and the clothing of rural America that continues to be the driving force behind my designs. View all posts by Susan
