My Passion

Masquerade Ball Gown by

Threads and Lace

I love fashion and history and have combined those interests into creating historical fashions. Pretty much all of my dresses have a historical influence.  Many of them are period correct. I learned so much about sewing techniques used long before machines came along. I also gained a true appreciation for what our ancestors went through just to create one gown. 

I use vintage patterns as well as my own designs.
