Emily made a customized version of this for me to use as a clerical cravat. It came out beautifully, and arrived quickly. Great maker, and great to work with!

About

The Marchioness Sews.

Update 10/1/15. Beginning in mid-October The Marchioness Sews will take a three month vacation, re-opening in mid January. I'm getting married!

I began sewing some years ago, mostly costumes for myself, but that soon launched into costumes for friends, performers, and small theatricals. But at some point over the years my closet became full and my pocket-book empty; thus, this shop was born. Here I sell lightly used costumes, custom-made costumes, and a few vintage pieces. My focus in custom orders are men's Colonial and Regency tailcoats, breeches and trousers.

My Shop title is taken from Charles Dickens' novel "Old curiosity Shop", wherein a very small servant does a great deal of work and does well at the end.

"This Marchioness," said Mr. Swiveller, folding his arms, "Is a very extraordinary person- surrounded by mysteries, ignorant of the taste of beer, unacquainted with her own name(which is less remarkable), and taking a limited view of society through the keyholes of doors- can these things be her destiny, or has some unknown person started an opposition to the decrees of fate! It is a most unscrutable and unmitigated staggerer!
-Old Curiosity Shop, by Charles Dickens
