Sourcing your Talent

Many members can sew their own regency era garments. It can be fun and rewarding. For others, it may look like an unnecessary obstacle to joining. Below are some links to people who can make or who may sell period clothing. This is a unique period for Mens’ and Womens’ clothing. A good tailor will want to do a fitting. Tell them your budget and ask any of us for advice. We want you to feel comfortable with your choice.
