Ever wonder how men and women throughout history (and even in modern day) got their garments to fit them like a glove?

Like they were meant to be worn
by them and only them?

They look so perfect and fit so well that they are the only one who could ever wear that piece (I guess there wasn't much borrowing clothes from your sister's closet going on back then with garments like these!)

So how did they do it? How did they get that perfect fit?

Well, it's no great secret as to HOW they achieved it but it can be YOUR secret as to how YOU create it in all your historical garments.

The secret is Flat Lining. Those two little words are exactly what you need to know about, love, and do to make each and every historical costume fit like a glove. One that is molded to your body and your body alone.

It's a technique that is not hard to learn but invaluable to master. To help you in that task, here is a great eBooklet on exactly what you need to know to Flat Line your historical clothing.

This will take your sewing, your historical look, your presence, and your demeanor at each and every event to the next level.

Want to walk into your next living history event glowing, knowing that you are probably the best dressed simply because your garments actually fit?

Want others to walk up to you to know YOUR SECRET?
