Perhaps you’ve been thinking about how to incorporate your love of historical fashion with your everyday lifestyle but find it challenging to wear a bustle dress to your weekly grocery store outing. You are not alone! So many of us in the historical costuming community have – for years! – been trying to add those styles of bygone days into our daily lives.

Jennifer gets us started in this episode with ideas on approaching this idea of #historybounding (a fairly new term) for our modern wardrobes with encouragement that YES! it can be done with comfort and functionality.
