I am a Civil War Re-enactor and Sutler, the cherished wife to "Private Hardcore", a mother of six children, and a grandmother to "six gifts from God", and of course
A Southern Seamstress!
As a seamstress, I specialize in Civil War Period Clothing for both Military and Civilian impressions. I make period clothing for the entire family!
All items are constructed from patterns found in magazines during the period, Harpers Weekly, Godey's Lady's book, and Peterson Magazine. Also, from images of soldiers during that period as seen in the books of Echos of Glory series, Time Life Books, The Civil War, or other photographs of the period. To construct a pattern for a garment based on a picture, movie images. Whatever image you want... we can make together.
I have also been known to use other period correct patterns such as Period Impressions, Past Patterns, as well as Simplicity, McCall, and Butterick that are found on the market today. (Some of these may need a little tweeking to make historically correct)
You can find these patterns on the Ladies Page.
I accept Pay Pal, Credit or Debit Cards, Check or Money Order and sometimes I have even been known to Trade or Barter!
