About

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!
Goals
100% complete
Video recording set with professional lighting and sound equipment. We have a hard time finding a place to shoot video - either recorded or livecast - that results in good quality picture and sound. We'd like to build one in our HQ and really take our videos to the next level.
