Madison is the culmination of lots of research, looking for women in the Civil War. I found some very interesting articles and photos – see my pinterest list for a few – but of course, my Madison outfit is a bit … shinier… than anything historically accurate.
No woman fighting during the civil war would have been seen in something so flashy and extravagant. Well, maybe in a dress review? Post-civil war parties?
The jacket is all over detail, with custom embossed roses on the lapel, collar and sleeves, brass buttons and chains. The trousers have rivets down the sides that match the buckle/strap rivets on the boots.
Each piece is available separately, but you save on the bundle. The bundle includes cap with goggles, jacket, trousers, boots, and bonus blouse with collar, cravat/scarf and cameo fastener.
I’ve introduced Madison in four colors: brown/gold, black/silver, red/brass and green/gold.
More colors to come!
