Here's a quick shot of my new mantelet, about which details will be shortly forthcoming. After this I'm going to be taking a hiatus from the 18th century (briefly) to complete a costume from another time period. You can follow along with that project on my other blog here.
I am a university professor and costume professional who calls Virginia home. Interested in costume history, and history in general, I endeavor constantly to better understand life through those who lived it.
