Karen's Custom Fit
Karen's Custom Fit is the parent company to Pioneer Designs and Princess Nighties. Karen's Custom Fit is dedicated to making quality, custom-made pioneer period clothing. From work dresses to day dresses to ball and wedding dresses for women and girls. Daily pioneer wear for men and boys. Care is taken to make all projects as authentic as possible.
Our clothing is period authentic, using period construction techniques and only straight machine stitching. The clothing is lined and boned appropriately. This line of clothing is for the serious period re-enactor and is priced accordingly. The pictures shown are just samples. We can make your project to suit your personal taste and needs. Prices vary with fabric choices.
The clothing pictured on this tab are one of a kind samples of our work.

- • Nauvoo Missionary Clothing
Missionaries serving in the Nauvoo mission are required to adhere to some fairly strict guidelines. If you have been called to serve in the Nauvoo Mission, you need to obtain the patterns for your clothing from the Sewing Room at the mission. Fittings are required, so it is best if you live in close proximity to Salt Lake City, Utah. This section will show you some of the examples of the Nauvoo clothing that I have made using their patterns.
