Greetings & Salutations!
My name is Anneliese.
I blogged throughout junior and senior year, documenting my every day experiences as a high school student and costuming experiments. I was certain that theatrical costume design would be in my future, and it may still be, but for sure I am hoping to combine my two passions - history & its clothing - into a career. Currently a costume intern and seasonal historical interpreter, I am transitioning forward with this blog as my new sewing journal.

What will you find here? For sure I plan to share my costume plans, progresses, successes and failures. Sewing to me is a journey, and with each project, I am continuing to grow as a seamstress.
I will be documenting my internship dress project (much more on this to come!) and updating with what I am experiencing out in the village. (One day every week I am in costuming working on my dress project, the other day I am around the village learning about 19th century crafts - dyeing, spinning, weaving, interpreting, etc.)
