Since 1990, MILLER’S MILLINERY has offered PORTFOLIO PATTERNS™ specializing in historically accurate 18th and 19th century head wear and clothing accessories. Original items have been carefully studied to draft each illustrated pattern. Construction techniques follow original methods. Patterns fit heads measuring 22” unless otherwise noted.

Along with items of MILLINERY we also carry appropriate CLOTHING ACCESSORIES individually stitched of silk, cotton, linen and fine wool. Trims are natural fibers when available. Construction techniques are those used on originals; most are entirely hand stitched.

Questions about colors? Fabrics? Trims? We will be pleased to assist in creating an accurate 18th or 19th century appearance. Can you find what you need? If not, please inquire.

A member of the Costume Society of America, she promotes accuracy in historic interpretation, primarily in 18th and 19th century clothing. She has won national awards, including the 1979 Delaney Award, for her Civil War era clothing and served two terms as National Chairwoman of the North-South Skirmish Association Costume Committee (formerly Ladies of the N-SSA). A retired art teacher, she writes magazine articles, lectures and conducts workshops in addition to running her millinery business. Her merchandise has been purchased by historic sites throughout the USA and Europe, and was seen on a 2006 PBS program about frontier life.
