Men's Eastern European Tunic Shirt

My husband and I are still messing around with our SCA personas.  This year we are leaning towards eastern european because we built a vardo (gypsy wagon) to take to events.

Blue & White Dancers corset

My Dancer corsets have become extreemly popular.  I can also make beautiful fashion corsets, but I think Im one of the few making these exceptionally light weight, easy wearing corsets.
