~Inquire about Life size reproductions~

If you are interested in having any of the life size reproduction costumes ( gowns etc. ) please email us with your current dress size and height and the costume you are interested in replicating. We will send you back a measurement chart for fitting. We are not limited to Civil War costumes. If you would like any of the other dresses or costumes from other films we can discuss recreating them for you. Please send you inquiries about life-size dresses etc. to gwtw4ever2@earthlink.net.  

Underpinning Prices

Since the figuring of the costs for one of these replicas can be time consuming taking many hours of research into current fabric costs, we will quote you the recent charges for a few of the film dresses.
