The majority of our 2022 custom commission sewing calendar was filled with our now internationally celebrated WWI Era Hello Girl reproduction Uniforms. We originally launched our design for this garment in 2018 as WWI Centennial celebrations were happening around the world. For two years, we made our WWI Hello Girl uniforms for clients from right here in Tennessee to the stages of NYC and beyond. We are proud our WWI Hello Girl Uniforms have helped bring notoriety and honor to the first acknowledged female soldiers of the United States Army.
We retired our WWI Hello Girl uniforms at the close of the centennial celebrations (in 2020) but last year were contacted by the US Department of Defense and asked to recreate several of our uniforms for the US National Military band. We just couldn’t say “No” to a request like that now could we?
So out of retirement these lovelies came and I have to say we were quite honored to have the opportunity to replicate these amazing WWI Hello Girl uniforms for the United States Military. Our reproduction uniform’s purpose has come full circle now.
In addition, we also made several more replicas in 2022 for various museum exhibits around the nation. If you happen to catch one of our nation’s military concerts or visit an exhibit featuring The Hello Girls, we most likely made the reproduction uniform!
