"Ever thought about doing something in the 18th century? A very interesting time with some very nice clothing.
Where abouts do you live, might be able to suggest something that will be of interest to you."
I have been invloved in Living History and reenactments for about 15 years or so and have enjoyed every second of it.
I find the process of research and experimentation which goes with the hobby especially interesting. I am also quite interested in period cooking and have been known to attempt it with a fair degree of success!
The last few years I have put my efforts towards making items of kit and equipment and have been successful in making ACW shelter halves, fatigue blouses, shirts and underdrawers. I've also produced Rev War goat skin knapsacks and linen shirts.
