Taking it to the streets

Wouldn’t it be great to see an 1860s fashion show? Want to try on the minimalistic undergarments of a Regency era lady? Or, find out what it is like to attend a one room school house in the turn of the century South! Well, now you can!

In an effort to bring awareness about the unique aspects of Historical Clothing and the role it plays in history, I am now offering Historical Costume demonstrations and discussions to interested groups. I have designed three programs to start with and hope to add more. Each presentation will last approximately one hour and can be adjusted to the needs of each group. Email me if you are interested in learning more about one of these programs!

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.
