The Costume Journal is dedicated to my adoration of luscious silks, bundles of historical patterns, sewing projects, and every costumed event that has ever given me an excuse to make a new outfit from a by-gone era.

Pictures of Gown
Here's the finished product!! If you want to compare it to the inspiration, click here.
After seeing the Opera of Leningrad's costumes when I was 9, and a visit to the Musee de la Mode et de la Costume when I was 10, I was hooked. My sewing and historical clothing education have been through reading alone. I have a busy full-time career that has nothing to do with costuming - historical costuming is my creative outlet.
I gladly accept commissions for period historical clothes. I will do my best to work with your budget. All requests will receive a free project proposal. Contact me through firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to working with you and designing the outfit of your dreams.
