My name is Izabela and I am a costume addict…
I run a UK based business specializing in historical costumes, Prior Attire. We are also historical interpreters and work at a variety of events, demonstrating crafts, talking about past customs, traditions, clothing etc. In the past I dabbled a bit in steampunk and bridal – so you will find a few relevant bits here too, but over the years I realized my passion is for historical clothing really – so i have concentrated primarily on that aspect. I am currently half way through writing a book on Victorian costuming – follow The Victorian Dressmaker for updates!
This blog will bring the branches together, posting about new projects events and other exciting adventures from the world of costuming, costume design, sewing techniques etc. I will also be posting articles on how to recreate different looks from different periods( most of them previously published on Your Wardrobe Unlock’d or Foundations Revealed websites), from Anglo Saxon to Edwardian.
So if you are as helplessly addicted to the stuff as I am, welcome on board!
