Girl’s early 19th century dresses

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.

Cut in the style of the 1820s-1830s, this bold print gown follows the fashion trends of children in the East. Made of 100% replica print cotton, this gown is made for a girl under the age of 15.

This 1840s era dress is made for a teen girl and features a lined bodice, separate sheer cotton collar and removable bow. It is made of 100% replica print cotton fabric with a contrasting hem protector.

1870s homesteader dress

These three dresses are headed to the C&O National Historical Park in Cumberland Maryland. These dresses are inspired by the movement West after the American Civil War. They are made of high quality, replica print cotton. The bodices and sleeves are fully lined.

The skirt is cut longer in the back to accommodate a small bustle pad.

Girl’s Bustle era dress

This sweet little bustle era dress is more costume than history but is absolutely adorable!
The little girl this dress was made for lovingly dubbed it her, “oreo” dress.

So sweet!

We modified our design so that children of many sizes can simply step into the dress with ease. The garments are also completely machine sewn with reinforced seams to provide years of use.

We made simple pull over aprons (based upon an original 1830s era garment) for each dress.

1890s skirt and shirtwaists

Two of our commissions for 2015 included 2 sets of 1890s era skirt and shirtwaist combinations. These four garments went to two separate museums.

1890s11890s4The 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.
