The first step in this direction is the use of historical patterns and instructions, as opposed to merely making modern patterns look historical. Such fancy dress costumes would not model the wearer’s
stance and could never be more than a beautiful facade.
The next step is the almost exclusive use of hand sewing needles, with wich I can create types of seams that are impossible to achieve using a sewing machine.
And of course I strive to match the material of the historical originals as closely as possible.
Last but not least, there are all those little, precious details that betray my love for creating historical garments and give each of my creations a unique personality.
