Materials for Ladies

 Materials for Ladies Clothing

    There are a variety of materials available for our women's clothing. They range from cotton (inexpensive) to Silk (expensive).

Material choices:

  1. Cotton Batiste: Semi-Sheer white cotton material, similar to thin muslin.
  2. Cotton Duck: a heavier material (light weight canvas) used in aprons when more protection is desired.
  3. Cotton, Modern: These are cotton fabrics that are available currently in fabric stores. We select only those that fit the criteria of 1800s fabrics. That is, colors and designs that are similar to colors and designs of the 1800s (i.e. follow the "rules" for 1800s fabrics) but cannot be documented as having actually existed. These fabrics are available in Solids and Prints. (Stripes are currently found in drapery and upholstery fabrics only.)
  4. Cotton, Light Weight: These are light weight / semi-sheer cotton fabrics, mainly used in underpinnings but also sometimes used in dresses. These fabrics are available in Solids only.
  5. Cotton, Repro: These are reproductions of fabrics produced in the 1800s. They are only available in Small Print, Large Prints or Small Plaid. The prints are designs printed on the fabric, while the plaids are woven into the fabric.
  6. Drapery: These include drapery material, interior design and upholstery fabrics. The weight of these materials varies significantly. Some dress styles can not be made with the heavier fabrics, as they would weigh too much (i.e. 3 flounce skirts). These fabrics are available in Solids, Stripes, Prints and Plaids.
  7. Muslin: available in Bleached (White) or Unbleached (Off-White) and are used in aprons, underpinnings and blouses.
  8. Satin, Solid: Satin material in Solid colors only.
  9. Silk, Solid: Silk material in Solid colors only.
  10. Taffeta, Solid: Taffeta material in Solid colors only.
  11. Silk Taffeta, Plaid: is a Silk Taffeta in Plaid design only.
  12. Wool: Wool is available in Solids, Stripes, Plaids, ?. The prices of wool varies significantly. If you are interested in wool for a ladies clothing item you need to call us first to discuss what you want so that we can find if it is available and the price change to the item for the wool.

    Not all colors and shades are available in all fabrics / patterns at all times. We will come as close as possible when we select the material for your order. If we can not get something close, we will call to to discuss the options currently available. We will also call you to discuss your choice if we have any questions or other problems with your selection.
