A sneak preview for 2012

Hello and Happy 2012!
I hope everyone’s new year is off to a dazzling start!

I wanted to share a new [ad]venture with you! This year I am branching out a bit- breaking out of the historical clothing mold and trying something new!

I am working on a bridal collection! I am so inspired! My sketchbooks are overflowing!
Here is a sneak peak of the first gown:

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.
