Handmade historical costumes for the history lover

Serving the Dayton, Ohio area

What we do

Creating historical attire has been a big dream for me for a long time. Extensive research and personal attention to detail will make your costuming experience a once in a lifetime event. I have been sewing for over 30 years and have been recommended multiple times to a diverse clientele. 
Historically accurate costumes are the backbone of re-enactors and museum history tours, let my expertise help you recreate those to the correct period. Not all costumes have to be historically accurate and I can recreate a historically inspired garment that will echo of the past with modern sewing techniques as well. From undergarments, including corsets, all the way to the gown on the outside, I am able to make your costuming dreams come true. 
I also do minor alterations for both men and women as well as create unique sewn items such as memory bears, quilts, and other home decor items. Custom sewing is not limited to historical styles, I can create modern garments as well as custom tailor ready made items to fit your body.

Our Process

Our four step process ensures that you get a beautiful, handmade dress that fits perfectly. 

1. Consultation

First, we will meet at the studio to discuss exactly what style and era you’re going for. This consultation will determine the cost and timeline. A downpayment will be due after the quote is accepted.

2. Design

During this stage we will create a beautiful, custom made garment that is historically inspired. 

3. Adjustments

We will schedule a fitting to determine what adjustments and tweaks need to be made.

4. Final Fitting

Once all adjustments are made we will have the final fitting. If everything is completed to your satisfaction, the remaining balance will be due.
