About Me


Hi there! I’m Kataryn Mercer, but my friends call me Kit (my enemies too, really).


My mother taught me how to sew when I was a child, but really, I’ve only been sewing since 2008, when I bought my first sewing machine and completed my first independent project (15 years later). I discovered historical costuming and simply *had* to make 16th century clothing. Then I started following other costumers’ blogs, some of whom also did 18th century clothing. I simply *had* to make 18th century clothing, too. If you’d like to see some examples, please check out my other blog at Kit’s Clothing Collection.


I recently began wearing vintage-inspired clothing and quickly began sewing vintage to expand my wardrobe. After my first handful of vintage projects were complete, I knew I needed a blog to document my ideas and thoughts about vintage sewing.


So here we are! Welcome to The Vintage Sewing Kit!
