I am new to this board, so I want to let you know what I do. My name is Gail Lewis and my little sewing business is called "Pasthymes Fashions".
I work at the Ozark Folk Center in the Dress Shop on their Craft Grounds. I sew clothing that is worn by the musicians, demonstrators, crafters, etc. there. Most of my clothing styles date a little later than Civil War, but many of the styles may be suitable for the ladies and civilians in reinactment. I make simple styles---things the country folk and working class people would have worn. I have long skirts, blouses, aprons, bonnets, men's shirts, girls clothing, pantaloons, etc. My prices are very reasonable, so it would be worth your while to take a look at my website and see if there is anything that you could use. I also have made, but not posted, blouses and dresses with the lowered shoulders that was the style in the 1860's. I also make fuller skirts that was popular in those days. I can custom sew clothing for you, as long as it is in the tradition of the poor working class (I do not make elaborate ball gowns). Please check out my website and let me know if I can make something for you.
