Blogs… Facebook… Twitter… and now Pinterest.Like I need to spend more time on the computer.Pinterest is an awesome place to compile images of historical clothing on the internet.But I’m not starting an account. Nope. I’ll just “pin” my favorites here.

Original, or extant, Regency era chemisette anddrop front gown over shift. Original sources unknown. (I feel this is a draw back to Pinterest. Sometimes original source gets lost in the shuffle or is not denoted at all.)



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.
