1835 Afternoon Costume

1835 AFTERNOON COSTUME

This dress is constructed in the large sleeve-style of the 1830s known as “gigot.” The full, ankle-length skirt is attached to a separate high-waisted bodice with hooks and eyes. The original costume is of brown watered silk and was worn over full petticoats.

Package includes patterns for a BODICE, SKIRT, and PELERINE (a scarf-like cape).

SIZES: 10, 12, or 14

PRICE: Was $10.00 NOW $8.00!



1840s DAY DRESS

This simple day dress has the narrow sleeves and “Marie Stuart” waist popular during the middle and late years of the decade. Cartridge pleating at the waist gives the skirt its soft, rounded shape, which can be further accentuated by wearing gathered petticoats. Our dress is based on an original made of cotton furniture check in green and brown on cream.

Package includes a ONE-PIECE DRESS pattern.

SIZES: 10, 12, or 14

PRICE: Was $10.00 NOW $8.00!


1865 Paletot Jacket Ensemble

1865 PALETOT JACKET ENSEMBLE

The three-piece dress is meant to be worn over a full oval hoop. The short-waisted bodice is a perfect example of 1860s style, as is the full skirt, which is at its largest for the nineteenth-century. The loose-fitting paletot jacket, a fashion popular throughout the decade, adds the finishing touch.

Package includes patterns for a BODICE, SKIRT, and JACKET.

SIZES: 10, 14

PRICE: Was $10.00 NOW $8.00!

1881 AVANT-GARDE GOWN (DISCONTINUED PRODUCT)

An “artistic” gown definitely not in keeping with the mainstream fashion of its day. While Paris decreed a tight corset, bustle, and elaborate surface decoration, a great many women wore this simple, flowing style as an expression of artistic sensitivity and taste. The original is of muted blue-green wool, with front panel of matching watered silk shirred at waist and throat.

Package includes a ONE-PIECE DRESS pattern.

SIZES: 10

PRICE: Was $10.00 NOW $7.00!

1893 VISITING COSTUME (DISCONTINUED PRODUCT)

The original dress is a cream wool grenadine shadow-printed in lavender and light green and trimmed with purple silk.

Package includes patterns for a BODICE and SKIRT.

SIZE: 10

PRICE: Was $10.00 NOW $7.00!
