Welcome to Dressing History's Online Shop

Please note that due to a recent bereavement, there will be a delay in processing orders. If your order is urgent, please email us.

Here we are able to supply a range of accurate accessories for re-enactors, museums, costume enthusiasts and many other purposes.

Our products range from completed pieces of millinery (prices starting from £45) to the thread with which to sew your own. Many of our items can be produced to order, and to your specific requirements, while others are available for immediate despatch.

We also stock many exciting and hard to find products, such as wide silk ribbons, clocked stockings and our own range of patterns.

Serena's first book Bergère, Poke and Cottage: Understanding Early Nineteenth-Century Headwear is now available directly from us for only £5!

Don't forget to take a look at our facebook page for regular updates about events and new products.
