Molly Limpet's is often asked to provide Regency costumes for Regency balls, Jane Austen / Pride and Prejudice events, or historical themed events and parties.
For ladies, we have made a set of over forty different dresses in a variety of coloured taffetas, and in dress sizes 8 to 22. Each dress comes with long gloves and a feather fascinator. Some dresses come with with additional bonnets and Spencer jackets. We have some in pastel colours, with the majority being in stronger jewel colours to complement different hair colours and skin tones.
For gents, we have tailored numerous different suits, again in a variety of colours and in different jacket weights, so as to be comfortable when you're 'Boulanger-ing' across the dance floor. Gents' suits all come with the necessary shirts, waistcoats, trousers/breeches and so on. Some jackets are double-breasted, while some are open to be more comfortable if sitting down to a five-course dinner!
We do keep a good selection on site, but always best to call ahead if you're thinking of visiting us to look at this particular genre of costume, so we can check we have suitable sizes in for you.
NOT LOCAL? NOT A PROBLEM! We can send costumes to any UK address. Contact us for more details.
