The American Duchess Guide - Previews!

Lovelies, we are so excited to finally be able to give you all a sneak preview and some behind-the-scenes info on our upcoming book, The American Duchess Guide to 18th Century Dressmaking.

We want to thank everyone for supporting our effort so far - thanks to you, The American Duchess Guide has reached #1 Bestseller on Amazon in the "Sewing" category. Woohoo!!

This video is the first in a series of "chats" about the book - motivation, inspiration, intention, and later on some more in-depth info about each of the gowns we chose and how the projects went.

The book is currently available to pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other major booksellers. It's available through Amazon in Europe, Australia, Canada, and other countries, so you don't need to purchase from the USA.

Make this gown, step-by step!
We *will* be selling signed copies on on November 21st, if you'd like your book to have a bit of Lauren&Abby chicken-scratch on the opening pages. ;-) We will also be attending events and book signings but we don't have settled dates on any of those yet. We'll keep you posted!


  1. Just ordered my copy! Can't wait to read it. :)

  2. I have mine on pre-order too. So excited to explore new costume opportunities.

  3. Well this is exciting! Just pre-ordered a copy, can't wait!!

  4. I already pre-ordered mine, so I'll try to make a signing event! :)

  5. Can't wait for my copy to come in November!

    Incidentally, have you seen that there's a kickstarter campaign for a Miss Fisher movie?

  6. Congratulations on the book! Can't wait to see more of your videos too. Kelly
