Who we are
At the Sign of the Golden Scissors our goal is to provide the most accurate patterns and goods for the 18th century living historian and re-enactor, whether on the field or in a museum setting. The Larkin & Smith patterns are the result of years of reenacting, research, and teaching by Hallie Larkin and Stephanie Smith. Patterns and kits are suitable for beginners to advanced sewers, with something to offer every person at every skill level.
Enjoy the creative process
Will most people notice that your shift and stays are entirely hand sewn? That you created the tiniest rolled hems known to mankind on your delicate linen cap? Maybe not, but that doesn't mean you can't take the time to develop those skills and to enjoy every part of the creative process as you build or expand your historical wardrobe. Learn new techniques! Sharpen those skills! And above all, have fun!
