About the author
My love of historical costume goes back as far as I can remember, and I’ve been sewing since late highschool. Put the two of those together and you have me and what I’m doing today! On the way here I completed (though somewhat belatedly) a BFA in Visual Art specializing in drawing, painting, and photography. It was during this time that sewing and the historical costume interests first came together – I took all of the costuming courses available through the Theatre Department. At first I thought I wanted to be a costume designer, but it didn’t take long for me to realize that where my true passion lay was with actual historical garments and their construction. Thus, the project which makes up the purpose of this blog is really just self-indulgence! And I couldn’t feel more grateful or priveleged to be able to do it!
