A passion for past era Fashions!

Heritage FashionsVA offers historical patterns for home sewers as well as some authentic ladies fashions. These period costumes are designed for collectors to wear to reenactment and theatre wear.
As a designer, seamstress of Victorian, Civil War and Edwardian clothing for 30+ years this business evolved from my passion to wear and do historical reenactment events. The outfits are created in average sizes. I no longer offer fashions that are custom made for a specific customer.
It has been my pleasure to create beautiful clothing for discriminating clients worldwide. The fashions of yesterday are created in lavish fabrics for ladies who dream of living in the past.

My favorite period is the 1880 era Bustle dress fashions as well as the Edwardian/Titanic fashions.

The sewing patterns sold in this shop will give the home sewer a chance to create beautiful and accurate historical fashions.
Thank you for your interest in our store.
