1840's Clothing
A seriously underrated period in costume history...

Most of these pieces were for the Eagle Tavern, set in 1850. As such we kept most of the costuming to the 1845-1849 range, and would only spring the up to the moment look on really wealthy characters.

I love this period, and wish that there were more 1840's events out there; so if anyone hears about one in MI, let me know. I'd love to have an excuse to make one of these for myself.
