Garments of the Past

2855 Apalachee Pkwy #228, Tallahassee, FL 32301
This site is dedicated to serving the Internet community with the history of garments worn in centuries past as well as a site that can provide information of how to recreate garments. I also provide seamstress services for those whom either do not have the time or experience to recreate an authentic looking garment. In the past I have always been amazed at the vast amount of information available in regards to garments worn by people of centuries past. Unfortunately while there is much information, many patterns used were either lost or were passed down verbally among families. My goal is to provide information on garments that have been recreated and where these items can be located. Eventually I hope to bring you my own line of patterns recreated from actual dresses worn by famous persons of our past. I hope you enjoy the information provided and feel free to comment on any improvements or services that I can render.
