Raised on a centennial farm, learned textiles from the source up, obsessed with 19th century everyday women’s wear.
Marna has been interested in textiles since the age of four when her grandfather purchased her and her brother their own herd of sheep. She was spinning by the age of 10 and an accomplished seamstress by her teens. Her submersion into 19th-century dress research began when she noticed many available patterns for Victorian dress didn’t quite “look right” and started collecting primary resources to ascertain why she was unhappy with them. This has led to the development of a research library and personal museum that is the envy of many friends.
Her focus on everyday dress has been a needed niche for many living history farms who needed patterns for their interpreters on site.
You can see more of Marna's research on facebook at The Domestic Lady's Dressmaker
or on instagram at dresshistorian.
