Welcome All! Hello and Welcome! New readymade pieces will start arriving in the shop this month! And more each month until I restart my custom order schedule. Also, I've just added a DIY section with patterns and notions! More to be added there soon!
My Custom Order Schedule for 2020 is currently full. For the rest of the year, I'm taking a sabbatical from custom work to focus on building ready wear! I've had designs rattling around in my head for months or even years now so it's time I get to it! I'm designing lots and lots of corsets or all time periods, gowns and menswear for Renaissance-Regency, reintroducing accessories, and making sure chemises stay in stock. I've even got some ideas for modern clothes I might try out! I have a tacit plan to return to scheduling custom orders in February but the ideas are still forming so I've got to ride this wave! I love doing custom work and I will return to it once I get these ideas out into the world! And off my fabric shelves! ❤️
Have you liked Historical Designs on Facebook yet? I post all sorts of neat things there from Sales, New Listings, and Restocking Announcements to nifty historical things I find online like articles and podcasts!
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 aim to ship all completed orders out by the last day 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. 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.
