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.
