Today, the Costume Design Center staff dresses Colonial Williamsburg's costumed interpreters. The clothes range from silk gowns and caps for the ladies, to cotton and linen wear for the middling sort, to handmade leather gloves and embroidered coats for the male gentry. The CDC also designs and sews the uniforms for the Fifes and Drums. In 2009, the staff designed and created the costumes for the new American Indian story "So Far from Scioto." They also sew for the Guest Artist Program. In 2010, the staff created the gown for the program "Dressing Lady Dunmore." Open to the public for scheduled events only. Check "Colonial Williamsburg Today's Programs" for available tours.
