Jessamyn's Costume Companion

Jessamyn's Regency Costume Companion | A collection of information, ideas, pattern tips and images for the Regency era. I Create fine-quality historical and contemporary garments on a custom basis. David and Jessamyn Reeves-Brown | For the cheapest and quickest, look elsewhere. But to fulfill your fine-garment desires, I will work hard for a fair price. I get deeply involved with each project, working closely with you to ensure that it suits your form, coloring, and tastes. The phrase "period-correct" is used with rather a free hand by web-based seamstresses, but I love research and am happy to provide documentation on any and all aspects of your garment. On the other hand, I'm not obsessed. We wear these clothes in the real world, and if you need to compromise on authenticity for reasons of price or comfort, I can point out which changes will ruin the look of a garment and which "won't show on a trotting horse," as my grandfather used to say. Above all, I strive to create garments that are beautiful to look at, pleasant to touch, well-fitted, and well-made. More than that: Because I make things for special occasions, they should make you feel special. When your garment arrives, you should put it on and feel that excitement of transformation into a princess, or the heroine of your favorite novel, or someone from the 18th century. FOLLOWING ARE LINKS to some examples of my work. I've provided an idea of the cost to commission a similar garment, but your mileage will vary, depending on fabrics used and details desired. Prices include sketches of custom designs; a mockup made in cotton of the bodice, to test the fit before the final version is made; fabric and trim equivalent to that shown; and handwork on all stitching that shows from the outside, such as hems and eyelet holes (did you know that metal grommets weren't used until after Jane Austen's time?).
