When I first started costuming in 1993, my focus was solely on 16th century dress. In the last 12 years or so, that focus has shifted to include other time periods and I now have a costume wardrobe which starts roughly in 1415 and finishes around WWII.
Most costumers will have a list as long as one’s arm (and longer) of future costume projects as well as “UFO’s” (Un-Finished Objects) and I do too. Most projects will relate to Kentwell Costumes but some may be from a different time period for a specific reason or just because I want to make it.
