About The Fox Den

Hail, and well met! Fox Den Finery is a Eugene-based handmade Elizabethan costume shop. I specialize in ready-to-wear lower-class garb for women, and any sort of custom Elizabethan garb for any body type, any gender, and any occasion.

ABOUT THE SHOP

The Fox Den was founded in Spring 2017, and while the start’s been slow, I am excited to continue moving forward and gain some momentum! I am the sole proprietress and seamstress of The Fox Den, and I pour a lot of love and hard work into everything I make. While this may mean production is a little slow, it also means every garment has passed through my hands and meets all my personal standards for quality, style, and finish. It’s important to me that each and every garment is made to last!

I shy away from calling myself a costume-maker, because I don’t believe that what I make are costumes. I strive to make historically accurate or historically inspired garments that are intended to be worn hard, sweat in, and treated like how their historical counterparts would have been.

For inquiries about commissioning custom garb, message me here on Etsy or email me at: foxdenfinery [!at] gmail.com

ABOUT THE SEAMSTRESS

I was born and raised in Eugene, Oregon, and continue to live in my beautiful hometown! I have been a visual artist and generally creative person all my life. I graduated from high school in 2013, and earned my Associate’s degree in English and Literature in 2016. I have been preparing to return to school to study Fiber Arts, and am very excited about the prospect.

I began sewing when I was very small, and learned all the basics from my wonderful and talented mother. I would watch her sew my very first renaissance faire outfits, and so much of my early experience with sewing is what I still do today.

Throughout my tweens and teens I sewed very infrequently. Then when I was 20, I picked up sewing in earnest after garnering an interest in film costuming, in addition to my love for Elizabethan garb. Since then I have been sewing constantly, and hope to continue to do so well into the future. I heartily enjoy all aspects of the process, and take joy especially in pattern-making and the inner structures of garments.

In addition to sewing, I have a huge interest in historical textiles, including textile economics and trade, weaving techniques, dyeing techniques and recipes, spinning techniques, fiber production, and more. I am beginning to learn how to tablet weave, and would love to learn how to spin with a drop spindle. I find the process of producing an article of clothing from the start of its fabric’s fibers to the final stitches and beyond to be fascinating, especially in medieval and renaissance times.

The Fox Den is a labor of love, and I hope it truly shows!

Cheers!
