Mrs. Milligan’s Millinery & Haberdashery offers a range of hats and historic accessories – from hats to spats – for discerning Ladies, and Gents, as well as to Rogues, Adventurers, Aviators, Living History Practitioners, and Reenactors.
Steam-Punk Aficionados, Cosplay Enthusiasts, followers (or leaders) of Neo-Ted, Lolita and other creative fashion styles, as well as unique dressers who like a bit of class from the past, may all find something here that feels just right. And it will come in your size.
Our styles are very much based in history – we study period catalogues, ads, art, and other images, mostly from 1750-1912, to be able to offer you the most accurate possible pieces for your historic fashion needs. We strive to be highly accurate with our styles, but sometimes we also have some fun with the colours, materials, trims, and combinations we use. We always know which is which, and what the differences are.We are happy to discuss the level of historic accuracy, and our documentation sources for any of our items.
