Snow is a bit a novelty in the American South. Large quantities are quite rare; however, even the lightest dusting can bring excitement beyond words. Our mountaintops are always the first to spy the flurrying of the cherished sky crystals. And with the falling snow comes a quietness as the world seeks to stop and enjoy each etherial flake.
Our third photoshoot, featuring the lovely Hannah and a modified version of our Harvest Bustle gown, attempts to capture this moment- the first unexpected (and perhaps only) snow fall of the season.
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
