 I am a professional seamstress and I have a sewing degree.

 

 

Fascinated by the history and the historical costume, I am a reenactress since 10 years. (Mostly Second Empire (Victorian), civil war and American old west period)

 

 

I make since a couple of years my own dresses with historical sewing techniques.

So the historical costuming became my favorite occupation, especially the 19th century and vintage period (1930/1960)

 

I make dresses from 1850 to 1960

 

                                                                                          1860

My Victorian dresses are made for reenactress, historical dancers,Theatrical or cinema events.

Or simply for all the women who love historical reproductions.

All my dresses are based of original pattern or original dresses that details I can find on museum all over the world. I realize my own reproduction pattern based on original dresses.

 I decided it will be more practical to me to stay at home for working. I am actually transforming a room of my house in a workshop.

 

 

 I would like to finish as soon as possible the workshop and buying professional sewing equipment (sewing machine and a table for cutting)

 

Some photos of my sewing workshop.
