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!

We've Moved


The lease on our studio in North Olmsted was up, and we decided to cut the overhead and move home. Chaos has ensued! But we are back up and running in the basement.

We added a new entrance and client space to the house and hauled everything home from our much larger space. The good news is that clients have a spot to sit down and talk AND try on clothes that is NOT the cold basement! Long time clients will remember that experience with a shiver or two.

Bad news - the work area is jammed so tight that it takes forever to find things. We're slowly making headway, sandwiching organizing in between deadlines and con preparation.

Since the location is now my residence, I am not publishing the address. If you haven't visited us before, contact us by email or phone to make an appointment and get directions. We look forward to seeing you soon.
