Historical Fashion

Clothing that makes history

Custom clothing and costuming for cosplayers, dancers and anyone who wants to be able to move in their clothes - and still look great. Want the style but can't make it or find it? Tired of clothes that don't fit or fall apart? Historical Fashion will work with you to design and sew the garments you imagine.

We specialize in imaginative clothing & costumes for hard to fit women. Special occasion dresses. Historical costumes. Cosplay. Dancewear. Everything is sewn in the USA and custom made to fit YOU!

Busy, Busy, BUSY!

I completely missed posting about Cleveland Concoction due to a huge influx of business. Which is both blessing and curse. To all the fantastic folks we met at the con - Thanks for making our first experience as vendors a fun and educational experience. To the con staff - Great job organizing! I'm sure the snafu with the light switches will be fixed by next year. We will be back.

There's one solid customer already - an SCA Benedictine Monk - and a strong probability of a Bar Fleet uniform. On deck - A 30s-style Riddler tuxedo, my dress for my son's wedding (There will be additional stories about that!), a summer wardrobe in linen and Japanese cotton, and try-on samples of some new items for Matsuricon.

Now back to the length of crepe-backed satin that has been hanging out on my cutting table for the last 2 days. Perhaps today will be the day it migrates to the sewing machine. 

Finally, a little shameless self-promotion. Time to add to your stash or pick up some of those notions you need - Craftsy has a flash sale this weekend! 60% off supplies & kits. Shop through my link and I get some pocket change.
