About

Meticulously researched and crafted- so you don't have to.

Back when I was 13, I never would have dreamed that I would be doing what I do now. Back then, my free time was spent pouring over costume history books and museum collections records; fantasizing over how someone could wear or make such beautiful clothing. Fast forward to now, and every day I'm excited for what each day holds because I get to do what my 13-year-old-self thought never possible---make historical clothing my business.

I am very passionate about making historical accuracy easily accessible to anyone who wants to take part in living history. Very often, living historians don't have the time or skills to produce the accessories needed to complete their kit. That's where I come in!

Every item in the store has been meticulously researched. New information surfaces all the time and I strive to keep my patterns & methods up to date so you don't have to. Within each listing is a very brief overview of the item, what it's made of, what it's based on, and when it is most accurate to. I love to replicate paintings and prints so I have included those for comparison in the photos of each listing as well. I feel that all of this information is imperative for you to achieve your complete interpretation of your time period.

More in-depth research can usually be found on my blog (link below) since I just can't keep the info to myself!

All of my items can be made in a custom order if you have a specific need that is not met with the current listings. If you ever have questions about an item, don't hesitate to message me! I love discussing my research my research with anyone.

So, in closing, please browse around, as questions, and let me know if there's something you're in the market for! I might just be working on something similar.
