I've decided to post about my 1840s clothing projects that I've worked on over the years and include my inspiration images. I started another blog in 2007 to chronicle the creation of my 1840s clothing for my wedding. You can see those posts as well as my other ramblings here: http://chandra-miller.livejournal.com/. My goal has always been to recreate historic clothing as closely to the original as possible and not create fantasy clothing. I am obsessed with researching history (I have a bachelors degree in history, a certificate in Historic Preservation, and a master's degree in Public History), so historical accuracy is my number one goal.
I hope you enjoy my projects as much I love working on them.
