Highland vest and tartan

Here are some images of a fun little project I worked on for a client in California. This highland vest and sash are intended for an evening gala celebrating the premiere of Pixar’s new animated filmBrave.

My client actually has Scottish heritage in her family and here is her clan’s tartan.

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.
