Wendy Poole Costumes

Welcome to my Historical Costume and Dressmaking Website

For many years now, I have made gowns and costumes for all types of occasions, including Bridal and Bridesmaids, Prom Dresses, Evening Gowns, Themed Weddings, Re-enactment, Living History, Theatrical Costume and elegant Fancy Dress.

I have produced this website to both showcase garments and gowns that I have made and also share my love of historical costume.

I also have a love of needlecrafts and you will find information on my knitting, crochet and needlecrafts projects at www.wendy-poole.co.uk 

You can also follow on my Facebook page Wendy Poole Craft, or Twitter at @wendypoolecraft


 The following list shows some of the eras my costumes have covered:-

Medieval and Renaissance Gowns

Tudor, Elizabethan and Shakespearean Costume. 

Stuart, Georgian, Colonial and Regency period.

American Civil War, Victorian and Edwardian period.

WW1 and WW2 through to the 50's Rock and Roll.

The Swinging Sixties and Seventies.

Fairytales, Myths and Movie Costumes.


 Please take a look at the rest of the website to see examples of my work.  The Photo Gallery has a collection of some of the costumes I have made, just double click any image for it to enlarge full size. 

The Historical Costume page gives descriptions of the various levels of costume I make and the Timeline page outlines the various periods in history.

Finally the Measurements page is a guide to help you when taking correct body measurements when planning to have costumes made.

I hope you enjoy this site and thank you for visiting.

Best wishes
