We now have the Fain memoirs about Napoleon and I plan on broadcasting these next. Fain was Napoleon’s personal secretary.


Coming up next: the Napoleon uniform project.

When Napoleon was about to meet his second wife, he wanted to look his best. His sister had a leading tailor make Napoleon an exquisite suit of the latest fashion. He tried it on but it just didn’t feel like him. Napoleon just had to be wearing a military uniform.

I plan to make clothes inspired by the various gorgeous uniforms that Napoleon wore.

The first is intended to be the General’s uniform from his campaigns in Italy and Egypt.

I’m starting by engineering a corset.
