(Mostly Second Empire (Victorian), civil war and American old west period)</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> I make since a couple of years my own dresses <strong><u>with historical sewing techniques</u></strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p>                                                                <img alt="1c3a4422540pix-1455612162" height="245" src="" width="162"></p> <p>  </p> <p> So the historical costuming became my favorite occupation, especially the 19th century and vintage period (1930/1960)</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><u>I make dresses from 1850 to 1960</u></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>                                                                                          <strong> 1860</strong>                                                         </p> <p> <strong>                                                               <img alt="Img_7220_540pix-1456235917" height="281" src="" width="187">        </strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>    </strong></p> <p> <strong>                                                                                             1950</strong></p> <p> <strong>                                                                         <u><img alt="Sans_titre_540_pix-1456235953" height="278" src="" width="142"> </u></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> My Victorian dresses are made for <u>reenactress, historical dancers,Theatrical or cinema events.</u></p> <p> <u>Or simply for all the women who love historical reproductions.</u></p> <p>  </p> <p>                            <img alt="Img_4936_540pix-1455610109" height="290" src="" width="192"><img alt="Dsc_0046-1455610639" height="290" src="" width="191"></p> <p>  </p> <p> All the women <u>who love the vintage fashion will love my vintage reproductions.</u></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>                                                                        <img alt="Sans_titre-1455610600" height="285" src="" width="124"></p> <p>  </p> <p> All my dresses are based of original pattern or original dresses that details I can find on museum all over the world.
