titanic02Hello internet! I am a Philadelphia based historical costumer with a panache for loud and crazy fabrics. Plaid? Love it! Orange? Bring it on! Absurd paisley? You’re speaking my language!  

I live with my husband Robert in a 1930s-work-in-progress on the outskirts of Philadelphia with our adorable chinchilla, fluffy golden-mutt and a small army of dust bunnies (house keeping is sadly not my strength). 

I got into historical costuming in high school when I discovered the Renaissance Faire and got a degree in Drama with a focus in costume technology from Ithaca College. I worked for various theaters before developing severe tendonitis in my wrists and elbows. So now I sew only for fun and work as a pediatric nurse.
