Across the Ages was launched online in June 2002. My interests in historic fashion go back to a very early age and I wanted to share my love of the styles past with others. At the beginning of this website it had very little in the way of content or even purpose, but it's grown considerably. In the first year alone I did two facelifts to the website's layout (this is #3!) and added new content while streamlining my ideas and dreams for Across the Ages. In October 2002 I added a popular feature on women's clothing of the early Twentieth Century, thus enlarging the website's appeal and information considerably.
My plans for the future of this website are still sketchy, but it's certain I will continue to add to the Tides of Change feature, as that is fast becoming my favorite part of the website. I've had some great encouragement as to how helpful this section of the website is, and believe that continuing my effort to share with others about this era will help educate and aid others in their research. I also plan to add, over time, to the pattern and book reviews (so many good books and patterns; so little time!).
Owner and Webmaster
The site endeavors to have family-friendly content which is suitable for most age groups. I therefore tend to shy away from undergarment history (there are enough sites out there on that already) and monitor the guestbook for offensive language.
Please realize though that I have no control over what sites that we have linked to may contain on their pages. While I try my best to explore most of the site, I don't have the time to go through page by page, word by word. Please use your own discretion when viewing one of the links.
