Romantic Era gown

This gown is probably one of my all time favorite designs. It is such a sweet little gown and so flattering. Plus, it is just so comfortable to wear. This gown is our Brooks dress and was made as part of an order headed to a museum group in Norway.

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.
