CUSTOM ORDER POLICY
With a young toddler in the house, I’m only able to work part time. Because my Custom Order schedule is extremely limited, I ship all completed orders out by the end of the month. If you need your order sooner please let me know, otherwise your order will ship by the last day of the month your order is scheduled.

Also, to keep my schedule from getting booked too far out, sometimes custom order listings are temporarily taken down once the month’s schedule is full. Then everything is relisted on the first on the following month. This keeps the gap between ordering & receiving things from getting crazy long. So don't panic if a listing you're watching is taken down! It'll be back up soon!

Example: If it’s March then I’m taking orders for May. Once May’s schedule is full I will temporarily take down all custom order listings until the end of March. On April 1st all listings will go live again and I’ll start taking orders for June.

About historicaldesigns

Sales 3,307
On Etsy since 2009

"Call it fate, call it luck, call it karma. I believe everything happens for a reason. I believe the we were destined to get thrown outta this dump"

I opened Historical Designs on Etsy less than 2 years after graduating from college with undergrad degrees in English and Theatre Arts. Much to my surprise, I found that I truly loved historical plays and wanted to do more than just build costumes for stage. I wanted to know exactly how clothes used to be built and exactly what was going on under the layers. The more I learned, the more vividly I saw book characters and authors in my mind. Queen Elizabeth I’s speech at Tilbury resonated in my mind and I could see the woman, the person, speaking to her militia, inspiring them with her brave words. Not only did Jane Austen have a face and silhouette in my mind’s eye, but so did the Bennet sisters, Emma, and the Dashwoods. And poor Heathcliff; I saw the ragged Gypsy boy, compelled by his love for Catherine, savagely fight his way up the social ladder only to implode under the weight of his own hatred and loss. Suddenly everything clicked into place: I knew I wanted to build historical clothing and I wanted to go into business for myself!

NEW CUSTOM ORDER POLICY! (2 month wait time)
Because my Custom Order schedule is extremely limited, I now ship all completed orders out by the end of the month. If you need your order sooner please let me know, otherwise your order will ship by the last day of the month your order is scheduled.

Also, to keep my schedule from getting booked too far out, sometimes custom order listings are temporarily taken down once the month’s schedule is full. Then everything is relisted on the first on the following month. This keeps the gap between ordering & receiving things from getting crazy long. So don't panic if a listing you're watching is taken down! It'll be back up soon!

Example: If it’s March then I’m taking orders for May. Once May’s schedule is full I will temporarily take down all custom order listings until the end of March. On April 1st all listings will go live again and I’ll start taking orders for June.

-How Does The Custom-Order Process Work?:
Once I receive your full purchase or down payment, I reserve you a place in my schedule. While I prefer to receive your measurements along with your order, you have until the week before your order builds to get them to me! If a fabric choice was part of the order (corset cover fabric, gowns, other custom items we've discussed together) I will contact you with images of the fabric you've chosen in the color(s) and/or prints you would like to see. You choose the one you like, then I order it, and store it for your build date. Then, in 2-3 months I build your order and ship it out! You will receive shipping and tracking info once your order ships.
