This Spring I will be making historical apparel – and giving sewing classes in making historical reenactment apparel. The Hudson Valley’s very own Boscobel Restoration’s history begins in the Regency Period 1809, I believe, and I will making these Empire Waist dresses that had a strong Grecian influence. They are just lovely and oh, so much more comfortable a style to wear than the gowns of just fifty years earlier.
I make these dresses to sell as well as to wear to reenactments or to embroidery workshops. If you are interested in commissioning a gown from this period or the earlier Revolutionary War period – please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org – they are custom made to your measurements in historically accurate fabrics that are available today. This style of gown is especially lovely for anyone interested in having a historical or period wedding – they are ultra feminine in fine muslin and silk – with wonderful trains flowing behind – reminiscent for simpler and more elegant time – a wedding at a historical site in this dress would be memorable indeed!
