WWI era VAD uniform with cape

Brrr! It has been bitterly cold here in the American South. The sun finally peaked out long enough for me to run out and snap these quick photos of a recently completed WWI Era VAD uniform and wool cape for a client in Melbourne, Australia. It was a balmy 10 degrees F with a wind chill of -5!

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.
