Historical Clothing and Costumes
Do you need clothing or costuming from a certain time period, like Titanic, Downton Abbey, Mad Men, 1940s, etc.? I curate costumes in the styles of bygone days....
You can see some examples on my Etsy website:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/VelveteenGarden?ref=hdr_shop_menu My curated fashion ensembles do not consist of cheap "costume" components intended for limited use, but are well-made articles of genuine clothing made from quality fabrics and textiles such as silk, wool, linen, etc. They often include features such as heavy beading, soutache braid, and other beautiful embellishments typical of the specific fashion era. Historical accuracy is important to me, and I strive to capture the essence of a decade as expressed through its clothing.
I select existing garments to repurpose for my costume needs, restyling and altering as needed to accomplish the fashion look of the chosen time period. I can accommodate sizes from XS to 4X and maintain a large inventory of great components. The hats and headpieces are created from findings both vintage and vintage style, adjusted for customer preferences as needed.
My complete costume prices are for purchase in the $125 range, and I also offer to take the undamaged costume back after an event and refund 20% of the purchase price, therefore making it into a rental.....or you can choose to keep it!
I enjoy working with clients to create costumes that make them feel fabulous, and never pressure anyone to purchase. I want only happy customers!
