What's Inside

What’s the story behind your shirt, pants, dress, sweater or jacket? It’s much more exciting than you may think.

From the history of hoop skirts to African fashion, discover the interesting (and often humorous) story behind clothing from hundreds of years ago. Were corsets really uncomfortable? Did medieval fashion really look the way it does in movies? These stories and much more are brought to life with illustrations and fun activities that provide a hands-on experience with fashion. And, at the end of it all, you just might be able to answer the question about the history behind what you’re wearing today.

About the Author

Christine Na-Eun Millar is a historical costumer, gamer, mother, and board-certified doctor (not always in that order).

She’s the creator and proprietress of SewStine, an online blog and social media presence focused on costuming 18th century costumes. In particular, she loves focusing on using new technology to recreate the garments from the era of Marie Antoinette and Madam du Pompadour. In particular, she loves to remake the over-the-top court suits and gowns of bygone eras, and then travel the world to wear them in balls in faraway countries—as well as nearby in her home city.

She has worn her garments in Versailles, London, and soon, the palaces of Venice. Christine has been featured in Vogue, The New York Times, and Los Angeles Times.
