Autumn blog sale!

It’s time for another blog sale, readers! This one comes out of necessity, as my parents are selling my childhood home, and I have to move everything to mom’s (we won’t get into the emotions involved with this here ;)). Suffice it to say, I probably will have more stuff to sell in the near future, as I become more able to part with things in the stash.

As usual, here’s how this works: Leave a comment about what item(s) you want. Once you’ve done that, I’ll e-mail you with your total and a shipping estimate (you do have to leave an e-mail address to comment on any posts, but don’t worry, these are never shared!). Unfortunately, at this time, I’m only able to take cash or checks. Sorry for any inconvenience that may cause!

Alright, onto the goodies!

Costumes/Reenacting Clothes:

Reproduction Regency dress made of black and white striped cotton swiss dot lawn, and fully lined with cotton batiste. I wore this once to an event in July 2012, and it’s too small for me. Has an empire waist and closes in the back with a drawstring at the neck and waist. $75. Measurements:
– Waist: up to 28”
-Bust: up to 34”
– Skirt length: 44”
– Sleeve length: 22.5”

Mid-19th century wrapper: Reproduction wrapper made of reproduction cotton print fabric inspired by a piece in the Sturbridge Village collection. I wore this once at an event for a total of probably 15 minutes. It’s just too small for me, and I felt a bit “meh” about it after I made it, so I’d love to pass it on to somebody who could use it! The wrapper has a v-neck, bishop sleeves, piped armscye and waist, a fitted lining made of 100% white cotton, and self-fabric ties. $175. Measurements:
– Bust: up to 34”
– Waist: up to 27.5” with lining hooked
– Sleeve length: 22.5”
– Skirt length: 44”

Reproduction mid-19th century sheer dress made of a barred lavender stripe sheer cotton fabric. Another dress that I wore once and feel “meh” about. Dress has a v-neck, waistband, bishop sleeves with a cuff and sleeve cap with ruffled trim. Closes in the front with hooks and eyes. $190. Measurements:
– Bust: 34”
– Waist: 30”
– Sleeve length: 18.5”
– Skirt length: 40” (with a 6” hem)
– Skirt circumference: 176.5”

Reproduction gored Edwardian petticoat made of 100% pima cotton with a ruffle on the bottom. Petticoat closes in the back with a drawstring. I made this for the Titanic Centennial in April, but never wore it as the circumference of the dress I made was smaller than that of the petticoat. To see more photos (including a back view and close-up of the ruffle) click here. $50. Measurements:
– Waist: fits a 28” best, but because of the drawstring, will fit anywhere from 24” to 33”
Hip: up to 44”
Length: 34”

Floral printed cotton (almost a twill), perfect for a modern dress. Piece measures 56″ wide by 1 3/4 yards. $10
