The Century Project is a concept that I developed while I was deployed to Afghanistan.  The premise is: create 6 gowns, including undergarments, spanning a century of fasion.  My partner in this project, The Tailor's Daughter, had already begun making our Regency Era corsets, due to our love of Pride and Prejudice (the BBC miniseries starring Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth).  While in Afghanistan, I began work on a late 18th century project for a friend (9 year old Emma).  After the research on this period, the 6 time periods decided are: 1790's, Regency Era, Romantic Era, American Civil War, Late Victorian (1875-1885), and Edwardian. 

I will post the progress of these individual projects as we have photos to show, and I look forward to sharing the final results later this year.

Stay tuned for more updates!
