MY/These REPRODUCTION items are Made in the USA. They are a quality reproduction item made as close as is modernly possible. Sewing is done by machine to keep costs down (except where hand sewing is required) and most do not show externally. Some items offer hand sewing on exposed stitching (such as buttonholes, hand pleating/gathering and top stitching) for an additional cost. Pictures of the item on these pages are pictures of the item I created and sold. All pictures of items I sell are Copyrighted, including pictures and product. They are not a costume that is made using modern construction or components that did not exist during the time of its original usage (IE: zippers, etc.). Beware of fakes, especially ones using images stolen from this site (Copyright Infringement, by foreign garment makers).

You Are Visitor Counter

My garments are made just like your Granny once did, hand cut, hand styled, sitting down in front of a home sewing machine, hand pressing, individually making this garment just for you, right here in the United States. There is a big difference between our custom made articles of clothing and the cheap, imitation, garments and costumes that are coming from over seas, India, China, or Pakistan, made out of the synthetic costume fabrics, laces and trims. Due to cost, time, labor, and the quality that goes into one of my articles of clothing, I can not compete with prices of these imported, play-time costumes. The fabrics shown on “Sample Dresses” may not be available at the time of your order. Each garment is custom made to your specifications, you tell me how you want your garment or costume made, pricing depends on trims, styles, and make.

You are Welcome to have me make a garment from a pattern purchased from a local retail store, such as Simplicity (I have a large collection of Civil War Era, now discontinued), McCalls, Butterick, and Etc. ... Historical Simplicity Patterns in my Collection~ Clicking Here
