Claire in Paris
This is a red silk gown similar to that worn by the character Claire, to the Court of Louis XV. There is a corset, chemise and panniers that are worn underneath. Will fit UK sizes 10-16.
The gown is hand made in silk duchess satin, the bodice is boned and lined in silk and laces up the back. This gown is not so low cut as the gown on the show - I figured most women would not be comfortable showing quite so much cleavage.
BTW - in case you are wondering how the dress will fit multiple sizes, the skirt is constructed in such a way to fit almost any size. The back half is tied around the front of the waist and then the front half ties over the top of the back. And then the bodice laces up the back and the laces can be let out to accommodate multiple sizes.
Claire in Scotland
This costume includes chemise, stays (or corset), woollen skirt, velvet bodice, stomacher, pockets, bum roll and shawl. Similar to what Claire was first dressed in when she arrived in Scotland in the 18th century. Will fit UK sizes 10-16.
The bodice is made of green cotton velvet, the skirt is brown pin striped wool, the stomacher is green and white striped cotton and the chemise is cotton lawn.
Brianna in North Carolina
Brianna's costume comprises cotton lawn shift, corset, navy linen skirt, tartan bodice & bum roll. Also has a knitted capelet for those chilly mornings.
Jamie in Scotland
This 18th century Scottish man's costume includes the great kilt, shirt and cravat, linen waistcoat and overcoat, plus baldric and sword belt. The kilt and shirt will fit almost any size - the waistcoat and coat are a size 42" chest, but could fit a smaller or larger gentleman - the waistcoat is laced up the back and the overcoat is edge to edge and does not actually button up.
This outfit is made up in wool, linen, cotton lawn, cotton voile and cotton velvet, with metal buttons and hand sewn buttons on the shirt.
We love the costumes in this movie starring Keira Knightley & Ralph Fiennes . It is based on Amanda Foreman's biography of the late 18th century English aristocrat Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire.
Robe à la Française
This gown is a reproduction of a Saque (or sack) back gown from the 18th century, also called a robe à la française (as seen in the movie "The Duchess" with Keira Knightley and Ralph Fiennes). There is a complicated arrangement of pleats on the back of the gown that flows to the floor with a short train. The gown is made in silk taffeta, with a silk taffeta petticoat, silk brocade stomacher, with chemise, corset and panniers to go underneath.
Robe à l'Anglaise
The brown and gold, silk brocade and taffeta gown is a copy of an 18th century Robe à l'Anglaise - unlike the flowing back of the robe à la française, the back is fitted to the body. This is worn with chemise, corset, split rump, panniers & stomacher. Will fit UK sizes 10-16
The Clan Grant Wedding Dress
The Clan Grant Wedding Dress was inspired by the Isabella MacTavish Fraser wedding dress at the Inverness Museum & Art Gallery. This dress is special because it is the only 18th century wedding gown in tartan known to exist.
I decided to make a similar dress in Clan Grant Tartan, so here it is - the dress is shown with a navy linen petticoat and stomacher.
