William Booth Draper of Dreams

I am not entirely sure how I came across this site, but I am thrilled to have discovered it and I think you might enjoy browsing it for yourself, if you don't know it already, that is. There are wonderful patterns for period clothing, including pockets, stockings, stomachers and caps.

There are kits for stomachers and pockets, including (below) the Deerfield pockets I was shown when I visited - very exciting.

And do check out the sewing tools and buttons and buckles - there are such fabulous items there - like the stilletos below.

Fabulous bone bodkins!

Busks for stomachers....

And wonderful hornfish needlecases!
