Historic Era Styled Garment Ideas
My Hobby: These historic garments reflect styles worn by past generations of people through the ages. They are made as closely to authenticity as supplies will allow. Styles are adaptable to various datelines within an era and range from Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance to Colonial and Victorian. The garment pieces easily adapt to create garments for the commoner and peasantry, as well as upper classes and nobility. Textiles and color, as well as ornamentation, inspire me to transform the drab to delightful.
Design and Construction - Costume designs are sketched and hand-drafted into patterns. Sizing and fitting are determined on dress forms by means of a muslin sample. The muslin is then used as a template for the pattern . The pattern is placed upon the cloth and cut. The final garments are sewn by domestic sewing machines and finishing touches are added by hand.
These are examples of garments that I have created in the past. I hope that they will give you an idea of what could be worn for different presentations, events and/or just for fun.
The following links will assist you with viewing some of my creations. Please keep in mind that these are not off-the-rack costumes. Additional links will direct you to my supplies for mask making and costume accessorizing. PLEASE REPORT ANY BROKEN LINKS.
