19th century costumes.

for the ladies wanting 19th century dresses,outfits and other stuff my wife Lillie does all that at a reasonable price,usually about £80 for a full gown in various materials,about £50 for a plain one as well as mens gear too. this is a pic of a outfit she made with a full riding skirt. http://img394...
