I have been sewing since I was a little girl making clothes for my dolls from my mother's scraps. When I was in college, I found the Society for Creative Anachronism and my love of historical clothing finally had a place to flourish. I started in Tudor England then gradually fell in love with the simple elegance and warm weather options of 16th century Italy.


I will be making a Florentine gown in the fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants style depending upon whether items I need to complete my outfit can make it or if I have to improvise and use my stash due to the global pandemic and shipping complications. Ideally, I will be able to finish this gown that I have begun the bands for.
