 WELCOME TO FASHION ARCHAEOLOGY - History to Wear and more! Offering our exclusive 'Edwardian Rose' antique sewing patterns, replica antique garments, fashion CDs, and other treasures for antique and vintage fashion enthusiasts, professional theatres and filmmakers. Add us to your Favourites

We specialize in sewing patterns with full English instructions in modern sizing, developed from authentic antique originals of the 1850's to 1930's, especially French Edwardian/Titanic era fashions.  These are not so-called tailor's draft patterns requiring complicated enlargement skills, but can be used like any modern pattern straight out of the envelope.  Click on our "STORE PAGES" (scroll down left) to read more about how we develop these patterns! Try our Antique Patterns on CD that you can print at home to save on shipping.   ~ We hope you'll enjoy browsing through our store, and that you'll check back again soon to see what new treasures we've listed. Thanks for visiting!

Copyright Reminder: Please note that all our 'Edwardian Rose' patterns are copyright, intended for personal use only, not to be copied in any manner or used for commercial garment production without our prior written permission.

General Interest

Feedback is great, but sometimes people want to say more about a transaction, and email us with their detailed comments.  Here are some samples of what our customers have had to say about our couture garments:

"I am simply AMAZED with the quality of the materials and the exquisite construction. The silk has a marvellous hand to it, and the color [...] is much more flattering to my skin than stark white. The detail is amazing, and I didn't find a stitch out of place - your work is unbelievable! Third, the Edwardian corset design is so beautiful and much more flattering to me than the 'Victorian' styles I've been wearing. This is the perfect corset for my December wedding."   L.- Sept. 2008 

"Exquisite...[corset], just love it!"  L.R. - Nov. 2008

"The corset has arrived. They actually delivered it on Saturday. I was really surprised as I was expecting to have to wait a little longer. And I would have waited for a long time considering how absolutely gorgeous it is. It is really beyond my expectations. I'm so pleased and in awe of it I really don't know what to say. It is just simply perfect! I know I will cherish it for years to come. You are certainly super talented and it has been a pleasure doing business with you."  J.L. - July 2011
