Announcement Crown of Galadriel - Specializing in modest, historical, hand-crafted attire - many items with a 'medieval' flair (my favorite historical era). Please Note: Due to many requests for modest dresses I am only creating modest and one-of-a-kind dresses at this time. The "Zerelda" 1800's dress is the only custom-made garment created. My attire items have the label: Simple Elegance - as that is the name given to my clothing items. ~Lisa

Very nice quality dress. Really appreciate the modesty of it and old-fashioned appeal (it is very difficult to find modest dress of any kind in any store). Seller was very communicative and kind. Excellent customer service. Would order from seller again! Thank you for the help and the wonderful dress.

Great quality, fit and shopping experience. I wore the dress as a Halloween costume and will be wearing it again in years to come, it's one of my favorites!
How It All Began...
Crown of Galadriel started about the year 2003 under a different name. It was a hobby at first, making infant and toddler vintage style bonnets. I was working a full-time job and knew that one day, I would not longer wish to work outside the home.
Eventually other items were added and after a few years, I went to part-time work outside the home so I could spend more time with the small business.
I moved to Northern Florida in early 2010 and the business moved with me. I started to dabble into other areas of sewing, such as Equine Wear, Theatre Productions and many custom orders, which expanded my skill, including the fine art of tailoring. This Etsy Shop was initiated in 2010 and became more creative, active and exciting in 2013.
In 2014 the name was changed to 'Crown of Galadriel' to reflect my passion in creating distinctive, quality clothing.
I am presently working on new clothing items. One at a time, each new item will be added.
May 2016: Plain Caps added back again upon customer requests.
Price fixed at $15.00 each. White or Black Cotton at the present time.

Even as a small girl, I was always interested in how things were put together. Whether that was the miniature car I drove around my parents yard, or a flower I had just picked in the garden.
