This month we completed a regency era gown cut in the transitional style of the chemise dresses of the late 18th century. This gown is made from a period print cotton with a silk and tulle sash. This gown is headed to a client in Canada for a Regency era ball. This gown is a custom made Marie dress from a print chosen from our collection.

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
