While movie-inspired ensembles are my most popular requests, I do quite a bit of historical
reproduction work as well. I enjoy working from real period garments, so if you have an
old fashion plate or photo featuring an ensemble you'd like to recreate, don't be afraid to
ask me about the project. Also see my Custom Designs section for more information on ordering custom garments.
