Historic Clothing Reminiscent of Centuries Past
Made in the USA
Over 1000 items in sizes XS through XXXXL
Have you ever envisioned yourself back in time…when genteel women wore delicate lace trimmed camisoles, pantaloons, bloomers, petticoats, blouses, bustle skirts, feather trimmed hats and lest we forget, elegant ball gowns. Made in rich velvets, taffetas, satins, and cottons and lavishly trimmed in a virtual treasure trove of laces, ruffles and beaded bodices. Recollections makes it possible for your dreams to come true!
Our design staff has dedicated over 30 years creating fine ladies’ garments and it is our hope that we have recaptured a glimmer of a time gone by. In addition to offering a vast collection of styles, they are also available in a medley of over 60 fabrics in a potpourri of hues, prints and textures. All for you.
Recollections’ designs appeal to many enthusiasts: members of SASS, NCOWS, or those affiliated with Victorian or Edwardian era activities. Many have sought our designs for Civil War Re-enacting, museum exhibits, costuming for the film industry, stage productions, theater performances, horse-drawn carriage tours, photography, clothing for the staff members at historical sites, ball room dancing and many other activities and interests. Perhaps you admire styles known as Gibson Girl, Pioneer, Old West, Soiled Dove, Prairie dresses or Turn of the Century designs. Or are you a fan of the clothing from Downtown Abbey, Somewhere in Time, or The Great Gatsby? We offer them all.
For those of you who are just a romantic at heart we offer styles that can be worn in our day to day life, just with the feminine and modest touch often forgotten by the designers of today.
