I recently purchased several items from an estate which are being offered here for those who may be interested. I have described each item to the best of my ability, however, make no guarantees. Clothing was inspected for damage, laundered and pressed – it is ready to wear to your next event. There are jackets paired with petticoats, single petticoats, shoes sizes 7 1/2 and 8. The mules are 7 1/2, the brown suede shoes size 8. The petticoats have twill tape closures (as they should) and are adjustable in size. The jackets are basically size medium, but the short gowns could be work with a stomacher to fit a larger woman. I purchased the items hoping to help anyone who wants to get into living history on a budget – they are in good condition, but priced considerably less than new garments. Thank you for looking. Any questions should be sent to thistledewbooks @ yahoo.com. Purchaser will pay shipping costs. Feel free to share with those who might be interested.

Please see the information at the top of this post, and email questions to thistledewbooks [@] yahoo.com. Thank you for looking. These are well-made, good basic garments, which have been previously worn, perfect for someone beginning to assemble a period wardrobe at a fraction of the cost of purchasing new.
