DESCRIPTION: ITEM PICTURED IS FOR SAMPLE PURPOSES ONLY - NOT FOR RETAIL

Allow 6 to 8 weeks for construction. Insurance must be purchased by client.

Made to order in your colors: This beautiful Elizabethan riding hat is fashioned in 100% silk velvet and embellished with custom passementerie. Choose embroidery work, if you wish, in a complimentary color, or a shade that matches your garb. Hat is 100% hand made from the base to the covering and takes 12 hours to complete. Compare the quality workmanship to other riding hats being offered on Etsy and you can see the excellence craftsmanship here - No wrinkles, or puckers! Hat is fully lined. Base is fashioned from Extra Firm Pellon and wired with 18 gauge millinery wire to keep its shape nicely. Pellon is better than buckram in terms of its water resistance, but not recommended to be worn when it rains, I highly recommend storing in a hat box to prevent wired brim from becoming bent. ***This hat comes with small cluster of feathers - LIMITED TO COLORS IN STOCK.

EACH HAT IS ONE-OF-A-KIND. Trim for your hat will vary and is limited to available stock.

CANCELLATION POLICIES: 99% of my clients like you are a dream to work with. Unfortunately, there is always that ONE client out of 100 that makes me question why I am in the retail business. PLEASE understand that the item you purchased is CUSTOM, and HAND MADE to your exact measurement specifications. You will need to have a tape measure at your disposal, or the ability to have your measurements taken. If you have made a purchase in my store, I am operating under the assumption that you have READ the entire description and made note that you need to contact me about MY availability prior to your purchase. If you have not done so, and you are informed that the item will not arrive before your event due to my current workload, this is not considered grounds for cancellation. Therefore, PLEASE consider your purchase carefully before making a commitment. I do not accept cancellations after a 12 hour period, and reserve the right to refuse future service to anyone who abuses my cancellation policies. This is not selective, nor an effort to be purposefully punitive, but is simply a measure to weed out those rare clients among the 1% that buy on impulse and then cancel; OR, dispute the charge to PayPal as a fraudulent purchase in order to have their money returned because they found someone to loan them a similar item, or become belligerent and demand their order be canceled because they are required to supply their dress size and measurements. Yes, these are all real scenarios that have taken place. I am always available to answer any and all questions and I welcome the interaction, but please be considerate that in doing so does take many hours away from current orders in production. When an order is canceled I have usually invested half a days wages, or more, due to the time spent in consultation. Please present any questions regarding taking your measurements - which will be necessary for ALL items in my store, sizing, or shipping and delivery times, BEFORE ordering. Please be aware that should you cancel your order, there is a restocking fee of $10. If supplies have been ordered or purchased, the cost of all supplies will be deducted from your reimbursement. Also, those who use my Lay Away program will lose their 40% deposit. All of these policies are the unfortunate result of abuses by the 1%. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND COOPERATION.


Thank you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

ALL of our GOWNS and accessories are one-of-a-kind couture, and custom drafted to fit your personal measures! Most vendors on Etsy offer pieces in multiples; however, we do not repeat the same gowns over and over. Rather, we will take a style you like and customize it for your personal tastes. All of the samples you see listed in our store can be personalized. You dream it; we'll create it!

How does the Layaway option work?

With a 20% non-refundable deposit, you can reserve a slot on our calendar. The remaining balance can be parceled out into six (6) automated monthly payments via PayPal. We've lowered our deposit from 40% to 20% to make it more affordable for our clients. Details are included in a contract for your protection.

What's your lead time for commissions?

We are blessed to stay busy! Our calendar is filled at least 8 to 10 months - or more - in advance. It's best to give us NO LESS than 6 months advance notice, but optimally longer! - especially for bridal gowns and highly detailed ensembles. Depending on the intricacy of your gown commission it can take up to 12 to 14 weeks just for construction. Because our pieces are highly detailed with custom embroidered fabrics and beading, we need every second! We squeeze accessories and corsets into our gown commission schedule and usually need no less than 3 months advance. It is best to inquire before ordering. We will make every effort possible to assist in your deadline.

Do you ship outside the USA?

We will ship outside the USA - However, because our clothing is customized there will be added shipping expenses. We work off a "body cast" created from Painters Tape and Cellophane wrap which must be created in your era appropriate corset (for women). This cast is shipped to us at the customer's expense. Any customs fees or taxes are the responsibility of the client, as well as any insurance.

I love this gown! - - How much is it?

All of our gowns are priced in the listing. The listing you see is for the labor involved to create the SAMPLE pictured. Unless specified in the listing details (please make sure you read them) all listings are priced for LABOR ONLY. Fashion fabrics are provided by the client. We offer a cost breakdown in most of our listings. It is worth noting that our gowns are of the highest quality, worth three times the amount shown, if we were to price them at an hourly wage. We make every effort to work within your budget, but many times we are earning less than $7.50 an HOUR! The average seamstress asks $20 per hour. We are passionate about costuming and want to share our talent with as many clients as possible, but our prices stand as is.

Do you take commissions for 18th and 19th Century as well?

YES! YES! YES! We are well versed in the construction and fitting for other eras, namely 18th Century! Our niche has been 16th Century, but we ABSOLUTELY can create men's and women's ensembles for other eras, to include 1940s Vintage. In fact, we appreciate the divergence as we stay so booked in the 16th Century we don't' have the opportunity to "play" with samples.

Added Value Service for BRIDES!

We have carved out a niche for highly detailed, custom fit/drafted bridal gowns (historical themed). Because this gown is the highlight of your wedding and there are too many HORROR STORIES we hear from our clients who have used other, less reputable (but cheaper) vendors here on Etsy, we offer live, personal fittings anywhere in the United States or Canada. If you wish to avail yourself of this service, we will attach the cost of our flight and hotel to come to YOU! No more guess work. No more disappointments or risk of ordering your gown on line. We will shop for the best flight prices - flying coach - to help keep your costs at a minimum.

I ordered a gown with another vendor and was SO disappointed!

It sickens us, but even among those who are viewed as scions in the historical costume community have, unfortunately, been less than honest in their commissions: i.e., accepting a client's money and fabrics, only to ghost on them, or failure to meet your deadline. Unfortunately, this happens all too often. At Designs From Time, we have built our reputation on Customer Service, Excellent Communication, Quality Construction, and INTEGRITY. We invite you to seek references from our past clients! There is absolutely NO EXCUSE for these disreputable vendors. NONE. We WILL NOT take your commission (and money) unless we can GUARANTEE delivery by your needed deadline. We would rather lose a commission than risk your disappointment.
