Dressing Up Info
  Welcome!

Welcome to the gentleman's site for costume research. You may now bid farewell to the days spent pouring over costume books full of ladies' clothes, looking for the one picture or bit of information that pertains to you. Our mission at Dressing Up Info is to collect and display original source material that you may refer to when planning your Victorian wardrobe, be it for Dickens Fair, Civil War re-enactment, or any works of theatre or personal enjoyment. As the site grows we hope to cover several decades in depth, as well as offer practical advice on the use and care of the gentleman's wardrobe. If you would like to bookmark this page, rest assured that we plan to keep it available here for many years.
