These two early 19th century dresses are for the Junior Apprentice Program at Historic Exchange Place in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. Intended to represent the diverse sartorial heritage of this original stagecoach stop, these two dresses embody the spirit of pioneers who headed west into what was then the untouched wilderness of Eastern Tennessee.

Two of our commissions for 2015 included 2 sets of 1890s era skirt and shirtwaist combinations. These four garments went to two separate museums.
The first 1890s skirt and shirtwaist are made of 100% lightweight cotton. Lightweight fabric was requested due to high heat and humidity in the region where this historical ensemble will be used. The client specifically requested a solid grey skirt with lighter tone shirtwaist.
The second skirt and shirtwaist is made of both cotton and wool. The shirtwaist is made from 100% cotton shirting reprinted from a late 19th century pattern. And the skirt is a medium weight crimson wool. The client specifically requested a skirt in a deep red hue.
