Beautiful interpretation of Secret Garden Edwardian Coat and Hat. Very nice material for the coat-love the navy blue color and a very cute hand knitted red tam-adorable!

This dress is so special. The antique lace is AMAZING! This dress is an heirloom dress. I love the big puffy mutton sleeves and the full skirt and the row of tiny buttons down the back. It was great working with this vendor!

I purchased two Regency outfits from this shop, and all I can say is - wow!! They are simply beautiful. Pretty fabrics, lovely patterns, and they look as if they stepped right off of the TV screen from the BBC's "Emma." I just adore these two dresses! Emma Woodhouse would love to wear them, and they look so perfect in my Regency scene. They arrived super-fast and packed very carefully. Thank you SO much!

About

Beautiful things, old and new.

Willow's Works is a shop dedicated to crafting fine costumes and 18" attire from historical patterns using quality materials. I scour resale shops and yard sales to find antique and vintage materials from which to craft my historical and fantasy designs, and I strive to put a little bit of "old" in the "new"-- beautiful things, old and new. I am committed to making beautiful, well-made garments, no matter the size!

I'm always inspired by the beautiful and the practical, and I believe every life should be lived beautifully. I'm all for everyday things that lend a certain whimsy to life, and make everything all that much more interesting.

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

Select items are now available for gift-wrapping! See individual eligible listings for details.

Custom and personalized orders

I love doing custom orders, so don't be shy about inquiring! The custom process starts with your inquiry (try to include photos of what you're after), and proceeds with measurements, price estimates, fabric choices, and so on. I'll be with you every step of the way! Payment plans are also available for custom orders.

Sizing details

I do my best to estimate what size in US sizing standards, but for added accuracy, I always include the item's flat measurements in each listing. Please check these measurements against one of your own garments (measured flat) to ensure that the item will fit you!

Care instructions

Typically, my garments should be hand washed, but especially any garments made from antique or vintage materials! In such cases, spot cleaning is far preferable to a full cleaning.

Reserved Listings

If you're interested in a listing and would like me to reserve it for you, please contact me! I can reserve listings for 2 weeks (14 days) maximum.

Discounts

Besides occasional sales, I cannot offer discounts on individual ready-made listings. If you are interested in two or more listings, please contact me.

Discounts and coupon codes are not valid for custom orders.

Thank you for understanding!
