Item Last Updated: Sunday, 30-Oct-2016 15:26:53 EDT

    Not everything we have available is on our web site. We are adding items as time allows. In the future we will be adding more outfits. Some will be for periods that already have dresses up on the web site and others will be for periods not currently on the our site. We currently have done dresses not shown on our web site, some of these have been done from original pictures and/or drawings. We also have patterns for many more dresses and periods than we show.

    Call, Write or E-Mail with your interests and we will try to accommodate your needs.

    This REPRODUCTION Clothing item is Made in the USA. This a quality reproduction item made as close as is modernly possible. Sewing is done by machine to keep costs down (except where hand sewing is required) and most do not show externally. Some items offer hand sewing on exposed stitching (such as buttonholes) for an additional cost.

    Pictures of the item on this page are pictures of the item we sold. All pictures of items we sell are Copyrighted, either by us or our supplier of the item.

    This is not a costume that is made using modern construction or components that did not exist during the time of its original usage (IE: zippers, etc.). Beware of fakes, especially ones using images stolen from this site (Copyright Infringement).


Examples of possible 1810's dresses
that we have patterns for are below.
These patterns are also available for purchase.

Circa 1796-1806 Front Closing Gown by Past Patterns. #031

Circa 1796-1806 Lewis & Clark Era Front Closing Gown
by Past Patterns #031

   The #031 pattern was pulled, with permission, from the extant garment in the Wayne County Historical Museum in Richmond, Indiana. The gown has no history. It is a day dress. The threads are hand spun and the fabric is hand woven of linen warp and cotton weft. The background is white, interrupted every 7/8 inch by alternate threads of madder red and indigo blue. Unlike today's fabric, the stripes are at a right angle to the salvage.

   Illustrated instructions for sewing the garment by hand are included, however, this is an easy garment to sew by machine.

    The bodice conservatively cut yet it has the fashionable small back of the period. As a result of the small back the sleeves form the shoulders, creating a very comfortable fit. Drawstrings fasten the center front closed at the neck and waist. The bodice is lined. The front lining is loose from the armholes to center front. It crosses over and fastens at center front with straight pins. This front lining does not support the bust. It is to help hold the front closed. A corset is worn with this garment. Past Patterns' will be marketing a 1790's-1809 boned stay in 2003.

    The pleated skirt is fullest in the back and flat in the front. A 1-1/2 inch crescent-shaped tuck at center front raises the skirt over the toes.

    This pattern is sized 8-14, 16-20, 22-26 in B, C and D cups.
