We recently completed this shortened cage crinoline for the Oregon Shakespeare’s production of “The Wiz.” This garment is actually based upon a mid 1850s era crinolette.


Our cage is made of coated steel encased in cotton twill. The cage has a 29″ waist and is 90″ at its fullest circumference.

Gowns for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival

2014 finished up with a flurry of busyness!  One of our last projects for the year were these two American South dresses for the Oregon Shakespeare festival!


The blue striped gown on the left is made from our authentic replica cotton prints. This “ticking” stripe gown is actually very lightweight and has a super soft hand! (Unlike the traditional canvas ticking you may be familiar with.)


The gown on the right is made of high quality dress linen in nutmeg brown. It has GORGEOUS texture and a sturdy, lightweight body typical of flax. It stands out very nicely at the skirt with few petticoats underneath!


Both gowns are finished off with large wooden buttons made right here in the USA! We left the hems unfinished so the costume department could adjust lengths. Both gowns will be altered to fit their respective actresses once they reach their final destination.

These gowns will be used in the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s worldwide premiere of Fingersmith.
