We are Timely Tresses
In 2006, Timely Tresses emerged from the creative endeavors of Dannielle Perry and Mandy Foster. That year, the company published 7 patterns, spanning the 1840's through the early 1860's, based on original bonnets, photographic evidence, and period periodicals. In 2007, Timely Tresses published 4 additional patterns for 1850's and 1860's fashion bonnets as well as patterns for a hood and a sunbonnet. 2008 saw the introduction of the first of a series of 22 fashion plate books. Six long awaited Regency Era patterns emerged in mid 2009 and are featured by the Jane Austen Centre. In 2011, Timely Tresses released the first of three millinery guides featuring their extensive collection of original bonnets, antique periodicals, and photographs. In 2016, Drawn Bonnets: Examination and Construction came out focusing on many extant bonnets in the Timely Tresses collection. In 2017, Dannielle joined the planning committee of Corsets and Cravats, an educational conference focused on mid-19th century material culture. Timely Tresses participates as a vendor in living history events and artisan fairs.
