New REVISED WWI Era VAD uniform

After looking at several extant WWI Era uniforms, we have decided to tweak our existing WWI Era design to reflect an even more authentic replication. Included in our new design are hem tucks, a slimmer skirt and a narrower shouldered apron. This particular gown is made of a nice summer weight cotton chambray.

Here are some images of the tweaked design headed to a museum in England.

About Susan

Hi! My name is Susan and I am a historian, seamstress, teacher, mother, and wife. My passion for history has manifested itself in the art of recreating clothing from different periods of time. Growing up in the American South, I am heavily schooled in the art of recreating clothing from the 19th century. After nearly a decade of immersing myself primarily in the Victorian period, I found the need to branch out and explore other periods of time. However, it is my connection with the American South and the clothing of rural America that continues to be the driving force behind my designs.
