The February 2021 Collection is Here - {Pre-Order Open!}

Feb 26, 2021 6 comments

Time for the first collection of 2021!

This year, the big plan is to do a pre-order every single month through August (yowza!). Our February collection got off to a bit of a late start (thanks for slowing shipping to a crawl, Covid), but we're technically still in February.

What I am most excited about, and I hope you will be too, is that we have a bunch of our most beloved styles finally returning, but where we were limited on colors and sizes before, now we can offer *A LOT* more!

Pre-Order is Open
February 26 - March 12, 2021
$20/pair discount & Free USA shipping

So here is what's on for the February 2021 pre-order:

Dunmore 18th Century Shoes

Dunmore 18th Century Shoes in five colors, all glorious

I've always been really proud of the Dunmore silhouette. Way back when, we developed this style with Colonial Williamsburg for that particularly exciting period of the 18th century - the 1770s through early 1790s.

Where the leather Dunmores were only available in red before, we now have them also in lavender, yellow, green, and blue, quite the Easter egg basket of footwear!

This blue is just divine

Sophie 18th Century Mules

Sophie 18th Century Mules in the perfect Georgian green, trimmed in white

Backless slippers have gained in popularity over the past few years. We did a pre-order of the Sophies several years ago, but the factory that made them actually went bankrupt (as they were making them, omg), and it's only now that we're able to present these cuties again.

They're available in the original colors - red, black, and green - and our new full size range of 5 - 10, 11 & 12.

All the classic Sophie colors (and perhaps more on the way some day!)

Renoir Mid-Victorian Button Boots

Be still, our mid-Victorian hearts - Renoir Button Boots in merlot leather


This returning mid-Victorian to Bustle Era boot has been updated with new buttons and an improved scalloped edge on the button fly. These are such a cute and crazy comfy boot that covers a pretty broad time period, from the 1850s through the 1880s.

We have them in black, brown, merlot, and ivory this season.

The new Renoir colors are subtle and gorgeous - pair with just about anything

Tavistock Late Victorian & Edwardian Button Boots

Can't get enough of the dusty French blue on the new Tavistocks.

Possibly our most popular boots ever, the Tavistocks have been updated and improved many times over the years. This time we have a new button style and a bunch of colors - black, brown, oxblood, and *the most* gorgeous dusty French blue.

Full size range available on these - women's US 5 - 10, 11 & 12.

A versatile bunch - imagine these Tavistocks peaking beneath your gorgeous Edwardian skirt.

Mae Edwardian & 1920s Shoes

Mae Edwardian Shoes were made to be in lots of colors. Suede & Smooth leather, single tone this season. Just delicious!

This pretty little mary jane is the surprise dark horse. First introduced a couple years ago, Mae's popularity has only grown, and it's a style just ripe for a bunch of colors. We've done the classic black, and also added oxblood red, French blue, and evergreen.

Maes are just gorgeous, and super comfy with that lovely Edwardian French heel. They're fantastic for 1900 - 1925.

It's hard to choose a favorite color of Mae but this evergreen is high up in that running.

  2. Hello! I'm just getting started in the wonderful world of 18th century garment making and I would appreciate a recommendation to a forum, I have lots of questions as I’ve never made any clothes fitted to me but I personally want to make everything as historically accurate as possible (complete accuracy is unfortunately impossible), I’m trying to make a pair of stays styled anywhere from 1730-1780, I really love the rococo style and time period and prefer to follow the style of a wealthier lady back then. I am having trouble finding advice and basic hints tips and construction of stays during the rococo time period. I have tried doing research but I am not having much luck unfortunately and maybe I'm just looking in the wrong places but any and all help would be much appreciated!

    Thank you and keep up the amazing work you guys do, you're an inspiration to me and I'm sure many others!

  4. Hello! I’m really interested in 18th century garment making and am just dipping my toes in the water. I am trying to start on my first pair of stays preferably based off a pattern from 1730-1770. I absolutely love the rococo era, however I have a bunch of questions and would love to be able to talk with others about my passion for hand sewing, is there a forum or blog that you recommend so I can get the guidance, the ideas and the helpful tricks and tips of the 18th century sewing world? I have tried to do basic research but I have not seemed to find exactly what I'm looking for and maybe I'm looking in the wrong place, if there's any resources anyone has for patterns, research, embroidery, or techniques for the Rococo era I would greatly appreciate a point in the right direction! I preferably would like to recreate a whole 18th century outfit, hand sewn and as historically accurate as possible and I think that's why I'm struggling. A lot of stays tutorials cut corners which I understand for time is sometimes pressed however I would love to recreate as historically accurate as possible (Saving the whales, no baileen for me lol) and do not have a deadline for this long project. It’s my understanding that stays came in many different colors and I would love to make mine a pale yellow or a light baby blue but can't confirm if that's accurate to the Rococo time period. I have so many other questions but I will keep it short, what are the best resources to research garment making during the Rococo period?

    Thank you for your time, and I appreciate the art that you bring into this world, you have been an inspiration to me and I’m sure many others to start sewing!

  5. Arrived to order the Renoirs but ordered the Dunmores instead...they're so darn cute! Will be historybounding in these all year long.

    Mmm, still love the Renoirs, though. The Merlot color is luscious.

    Very best,
    Natalie in KY
