I love making these dresses. They are beautiful as long reenacting dresses but I have also made them shorter and people have worn them as summer dresses. It is a great silhouette. The dresses can have long or short sleeves, buttons or ties in the back, a lace overlay or plain. There are so many options.
The reenacting dresses are always made with 100% cotton materials and fabric styles appropriate to the time. Custom personal dresses can be made in any fabric desired, long or short.
