I’m an assistant professor in human-machine interaction and AI from the Netherlands who also loves history, sewing, folk dance & costume, and photography.  This blog was created to show off my historical creations and to share inspiration and resources. My love for historical clothing goes back years, and I started sewing more seriously around 2013, when I also started this blog. I learned the basics of sewing from my mother, but everything beyond that I taught myself with the help of the many wonderful resources and blogs online and I’m still learning new things constantly. If you have questions or comments, you can always leave me a message here, on my Facebook page, Instagram, or email me at: atelier.nostalgia@gmail.com

  1. I love looking at and reading you blog posts. I belong to a genealogical society that has a large collection of women and children’s clothing from the late 18th century to the mid-20th, and your blog gives me inside into how some of our garments were constructed and worn. Thanks for sharing all your hard work, and keep on blogging.

  2. Very informative.. My family are from Zeeland , Arnemuiden and Middelburg with my father from Friesland. I am making miniature Dutch lace caps and your posts have helped me with accuracy- Many thanks Donna

  3. Hi,

    I am also from the Netherlands.
    I wonder if the female tech – historical costuming is a thing?
    I work as a data scientist!
