Journal
Deviants re-create the past through fashion.
Since art has existed artists have drawn on the past to create their masterpieces.  Some paint, some draw, some create statues and some re-create the clothing.
Around the world today there are artists working on showing a past fashion through the construction of a garment.  Sometimes this is the reproduction of a surviving garment down to the thread count, sometimes they are simply trying to grasp the look of the period using modern techniques and materials and mostly they fall somewhere in between.  
Creating past fashion isn’t easy.  First you have to figure out what was worn.  Sometimes this isn’t too hard, you look at some photos, some surviving garments, you read some books, you talk to some people.  Sometimes it is very hard, perhaps there aren’t any surviving garments and maybe the art of the time doesn’t show what real people actually wore. Sometimes all the information is in a language you don

Hello everyone! As you can see, updating gets a little sparse around here... I still love looking at everyone's deviations and finding new favorites. I do, however, update a lot more often on my two blogs. So if you want to stay up to date with the crazy stuff I'm doing, visit me there!

I am now living in Michigan where I'll be doing a TON of War of 1812 reenacting. You can expect a lot more 1812/Regency stuff coming in the future... And also wedding stuff! Because I am insane and I am making my own dress! ;-)

Young ladies should concern themselves with what is pretty. England is pretty... babies are pretty... some table linen can be very pretty...

Personal Quote: In every moment and every inch a lady.

Hello Samantha! I've never met you personally, but my sister, Mary Emily, went to Athenaeum the same year as you. My mom and I always admired your hand-sewn gowns, and it's lovely to see all the other work you've done!
Anyway, hello :)
