WWI Era nurses uniform

Our first commission of 2012 was for an early 20th century nurse’s uniform in steel blue for an Australian museum that will opening this year. The Sunbury, Victoria museum will focus on the preservation of the local Sanitorium. Guided tours will be offered beginning this year. Our uniform and cap will be part of the museum’s exhibit. The client has graciously provided a few images of the facility and I am excited to share them with you!

About Susan

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.
