Hello everyone, and welcome to my shop! I've been in the reenacting communities thru participation within a unit and now thru my sewing for 28 years. I did the mud, the rain, the cold in the past and now find that I enjoy living histories better by providing historically accurate clothing for our Living Historians.

Not responsible for postal damages or packages that are lost by the post office (see shipping policy for insured items)

If for some reason you deviate from an already discussed order that you have either made a down payment or paid for and I cannot accommodate you, and you request a refund ***A. If fabrics were already purchased, it will be deducted from your refund the retail cost plus the shipping charges it cost me to receive them and ***B. I will then ship those supplies to you deducting the shipping it cost to ship to you. After all, you paid for it. There also will be a 25% fee deducted from your refund, because, at this point...I've already exercised about 5-10 hours planning your order, finding your fabrics and supplies. ***C if measurements were sent to me and item needs a fitting and toile has already been mailed, I will deduct $50 per muslin fit.
Additional policies and FAQs
Alot of time and research is put into my items. I can wholesale to respectable businesses, and even historical groups please contact me for wholesale policy and price list.
