Hi! I am Jessie, but I go by AnotherDreamGoneWest on Instagram (my costuming home.) I only began sewing historically about a year ago, but I have already found such joy in the craft/community that it feels like much longer! I’ve been sewing all my life (what I can remember, anyway). I'm a fashion designer professionally, and a costumer/history nerd on the side.


I will be making a late 1480s Florentine women’s ensemble consisting of hose, camicia, supportive bodice, gamurra with sleeves, cioppa, shoes, hanky, necklace, hair accessory, and a cloak. I would like this ensemble to be representative of the merchant class and will be trying to be as historically accurate as possible in terms of construction..
