About

Everyone should have the opportunity to experience an authentic taste of history.

My love of historical fashion first started around the age of 13 or 14. In 1991 I was transfixed watching 'The House of Eliott' series, set in a 1920s fashion house. Three years after that, my family travelled up to York for our annual summer holiday, and we visited York Castle Museum. All I can remember of the displays there is drooling over the Costume section. I started sewing historical dress for myself when I was 13, and for my dolls before that.

My customers are very important to me; each is valued, and I enjoy building my working relationships. As well as working for individuals and small groups, in 2013 I received my first large order from an international wardrobe department.

Through my shop here on Etsy products and items for costumiers and devotees of historical dress can be purchased, such as vintage & antique trims, original fashion plates, reproduction handmade thread buttons, fabrics and other sewing supplies.

    The 21st century is a mystery to me. I dream of pony and cart jaunts down English country lanes, ending the day with a book by George Eliot or Jane Austen.
