American Duchess believes in helping everyone interested in historical costume and dress history to explore the past through making and wearing their own beautiful creations. Our mission is to nurture and support this community with videos, podcasts, and blog posts on all aspects of historic dressmaking, along with patterns and how-to books for seamstresses of every level.

With your contribution, you directly help us produce more of this good stuff - better quality videos and podcasts, more in-depth tutorials, and a continued series of books and patterns. We are dedicated to opening up the world of historic dress wherever information and help is needed.

 
You may already be familiar with our historical costuming blog, American Duchess on FacebookInstagram, or as a maker of reproduction historical shoes and accessories. We've recently also started a podcast and are now jumping in to video as a way to share projects and help others learn how to sew historic gowns.


We want to offer guidance, tutorials, information, points of interest, and a creative community for everyone interested in historic dress, in any way they like to learn, be it through videos, books, patterns, podcasts, or written posts.

Thank you for joining us on this journey! We hope to create amazing things with your help!

Printed Patterns! How cool would it be to produce our own line of printed patterns, all graded out and ready to cut and make? For this big goal we need training, software, and equipment, particularly the grading and layout software and the large-format printer.
