Selling historical clothing on Etsy

I've been adding more garments to my Etsy store. At this stage everything is custom made to your measurements, but later in the year I hope to add a ready-made option of the more popular lines.

As a May 2011 special, I've put out a 10% discount coupon for readers of this blog - simply use the code DISCOUNT10 when you place an order in my store.

I'm a buyer as well as a seller on Etsy, and I've received both excellent clothing orders and ones where I wonder where they learnt to sew. I know we all have to start somewhere, but please, not on the commercial market. Handmade does not mean shoddy work - it means made by a person with their hands, and with care. I believe that my clothing shows this care, and my hand-finishing gives it a neat finish and longer life. I am continually researching historical sewing methods both at home and overseas, and have my own collection of antique garments for personal reference.
