The Thin Red Line - Recreating military uniforms for modern wear.

The Thin Red Line - Recreating military uniforms for modern wear.

Saturday 17 November 2012

To introduce our special 40th Anniversary in 2013 we have invited Chris Seals from Farthingales Costumes to bring along a selection of his wonderful military uniforms, particularly the red ones, and talk to us about how he researches and makes them.

This family business is based in Bath and has been supplying museums, re-enactors, TV and private clients since 1988. Those who joined us at the WECS ‘Hats’ study day in October 2010 may remember a wonderful display by the millinery wing of Farthingales. A visit to their website www.farthingalecostumes.com will show you these are beautifully re-constructed garments and well worth some serious study.

The report on this event is included in the Spring 2013 issue of WECS Wardrobe.
