Hi! My name is Merja Palkivaara. This is my blog where I write about my costuming projects, focusing on fashions before the automobile took over the streetscape.

This is something that I do as a creative outlet on my free time, and I’m at the mercy of my muse, so updating can be sporadic.

I find historical fashions and and everything that goes in to achieving the correct silhouette utterly fascinating, but I don’t support vintage values or dream about living in the past.
