Sewing Reenactor Clothing

Louise Gwiazdowski

Hello, Thank you for directing me to the Sutler List. There’s quite a lot of information for me, and I’ll be visiting the Sutler Websites.

I have sewn reproduction Civil War clothing, using a treadle sewing machine and hand sewing methods, for the reenactors in our family. Sewing Revolutionary War clothing will be new to me, and I need to learn about the pattern styles, the fabrics, buttons, trims, etc. needed to create a reproduction uniform.

I’m hoping other sewers can share their experiences sewing Revolutionary War uniforms, and other men’s and women’s clothing from this period.
