Click on photo tab for pictures! Women's historic fashion from 1750-1960. Interested in hats, corsets, bustles, hoops, panniers, vintage? I also do lectures/presentations on historic fashion with slideshows, Power Point and dress forms with both antique and reproduction clothing.

"I have had the pleasure of working with Chantal on several occasions, and in several capacities.
As a recent Board Member and Events Coordinator for a local costuming organization, I know Chantal to be a sought-after instructor, and personally attended several of her lectures on a variety of topics. She was always extremely well-prepared and had mastery of her topic. Her lectures were highly praised by those who were in attendance, and were presented in such a way that people of all skill levels were able to walk away with an improved appreciation of the topic, as well as the information they needed to work on their own creations.
This same organization was always thrilled when Chantal offered us the use of her creations for our displays. She has an eye for those details that "make" the outfit, so you know you are always going to see something that inspires you.
I have also worked with Chantal on an individual basis. When my own projects have gone awry, she is a very welcome set of eyes to help me discover the problem and create solutions. We have also met the challenge of creating an entire 1870s outfit (from design/ style choice to the finishing details) within a very short time frame. She was encouraging and supportive throughout, and able to adapt to the particular needs of the project.
An excellent resource for those who want to take their skills to the next level!"
