Christine Millar is the creator and proprieteress of SewStine, an online blog and social media presence focused on costuming 18th century costumes. In particular, she loves focusing on using new technology to recreate the garments from the era of Marie Antoinette and Madam du Pompadour. Histroically, those garments were made by shops full of embroiderers, who would work in teams, day and night to make the original clothing. Since access to these workshops are limited today, Christine uses software and machines to digitize and embroider these garments. In particular, she loves to remake the over the top court suits and gowns of bygone eras, and then travel the world to wear them in balls in far away countries - as well as nearby in her home city of Saint Louis. She has worn her garments in Versailles, London, and soon, the palaces of Venice. Of note, this is a hobby and a passion for Christine, who works in the day (and night) as a full time physician, and is also a wife and mother.
