Welcome to Lavender's Green Historic Clothing ... Your 19th-Century Dressmaker!
Kay Demlow has created hundreds of garments during her more than 20 years as a fashion historian and dressmaker with an emphasis on clothing from the American Revolution period to the end of World War II. Interviewed recently by AM Northwest in Portland, you can see Kay in action. (Video at left)
Lavender's Green creates authentic reproduction clothing and accessories for various vintage styles from 1776 to 1945. We can costume for events that include Colonial, Regency, Victorian, Civil War, Pioneer, Old West, Gold Rush, Arts and Crafts, Edwardian, early Automobile, Roaring Twenties, the Depression, and World War II.
We offer a printed catalog of basic styles which you can order in your choice of fabrics. Or, we will be happy to custom design something to your specifications.
Our historic fashions are inspired by solid research and a genuine appreciation for the art of clothing. We pride ourselves in putting great thought, care, and experience into everything we do.
