Hi! I'm Margaret Roe and I'm a serial historical costumer.

I have spent over 20 years making the Renaissance (and other historical eras') clothing. It combined my love of research, passion for history, and deftness at sewing, and I've been hooked ever since. Best of all, I get to make the Renaissance clothing of my clients' dreams!

If you'd like your own, head-turning Renaissance clothes, I offer two purchasing choice:

  • House of Roe is my ready-made clothing line. Here, you can choose a premade outfit or just pick up the basic foundational garments you need.
  • Margaret Roe Designs is my custom clothing company. If you're ready for a unique, tailor-made outfit or you're looking for special features in your clothing, this is the place for you!

On the other side of things, I love teaching others to do what I do too! If you're ready to make your own Renaissance clothing, I offer two options for you as well:

  • Make Renaissance Clothing is my free blog, full of tips and tricks, guides and worksheets, and tons of information on how to get started and then how to up your game!
  • Through Renaissance Clothing Courses, I offer online courses and mentoring for those of you who want to learn from me in an in-depth, step-by-step program.

So, have a look around, check out the work I do, and connect with me. And enjoy the Renaissance clothing of your dreams!


I love to hear from you, and I’d be delighted to answer your questions.
