About Me

1776 Dress-2


Hello, my name is Anita, and I’m the caged maiden.  Welcome to the culmination of nineteen years of costuming journey.  I built this site to share my experiences and research with those who share my passion for historical dress.  Unlike other sites, I don’t focus on a single time period, but my main interests lie in Northern European clothing of the 1570’s.  That being said, you’ll find loads of other things here.  While I pride myself on creating authentic, honest historical clothing, I enjoy delving into the fantastic on occasion.  Leather bows to my will and fabric begs for my mercy.  I do what I like and hope you do, too.
