We recently completed this gown for a client who has commissioned from us in the past. This gown will be worn to interpretPolly Key (wife of Francis Key) in celebration of the 200th anniversary of compositionof The Star Spangled Banner.
The dress is made of 100% cotton with lace accents. Ruching has been inserted near the hem for a decorative accent. We also made a straw bonnet to go with this dress.

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
