Aimee Cook is fashion history educator, author of the blog Inside Aimee’s Victorian Armoire, curator of The 19th Century Living History Resource Page, and owner of the online shop Aimee’s Victorian Armoire. With two degrees in history and education, and over twenty years of historical sewing experience, Aimee spends her times working and speaking at local museums, running historical based workshops, and offering a wide variety of ready made and custom women’s clothing and digital patterns.
“My journey to historical sewing began as a young girl eager to become more creative and get in touch with the past. From the age of ten I spent my free time sewing clothes for my dolls and working hard to improve my technique and skill level. College vacations were spent creating new historical garments from patterns I curated from the internet, stores, and random garage sales. Then in 2009, I began to sell my historical clothing over the internet as a fun side hobby while I was a full time Social Studies teacher. My love for the art continued to grow, and I began to desire new avenues to share my love for not only historical fashion, but also historical living, and cooking. Therefore in 2013, I started this blog, Aimee’s Victorian Armoire (same name as my online business), as a way to connect and share with other likeminded individuals around the world! So whether you love the 1810’s, 1890’s, or 1940’s you will find a spot where all decades are embraced, past looks are admired, and sewing skills can be improved.”
