Inside the mind of a costume designer

While I have not yet seen the PBS film Dolley Madison, I did watch the interview with the costume designer. Great insight into the mind of not only a historical costumer, but a film costumer as well. Shows you the process of how costuming in the film industry works. Very interesting. 
Check it out when you have time.




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.
