Petticoats and Pockets

Hello! My name is Juliet Braidwood, and I’m a costumer and reenactor living in Dorset, UK. Having joined the Dreamstress’ Historical Sew Monthly 2020 (admittedly half way through, but I’m often late to things!) I decided it would probably be a good idea for me to have somewhere to record my projects, and to make it easier to find my research.

My main areas of interest are the Tudor and Georgian periods. I often reenact at Kentwell Hall, which is where my interest in historical clothing developed. While much of this blog will be about the projects I’m working on, I also have space for the research I’ve been doing, both in dress and in social history.

I’m always happy to hear from other people interested in similar things, both in comments and through Instagram.
