ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps and is a day commemorating all who have been lost in both conflict and peace keeping situations. This year marks the 100th anniversary of Australia and New Zealand’s entrance into WWI (1914-1918).

Here is another completed WWI era VAD uniform and cape headed to a client in Australia. It will be worn in an ANZAC day celebration!

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.
