Dawn's Costume Guide

Me in my red wool jacket and my attempt at late 16th century working class clothing. On the right with the jacket open to show more of the black wool and white linen partlets, and the skirt tucked up to show the underskirt.

My husband in his late 16th century stuff, including a "fur" lined red wool gown based on examples from _Patterns of Fashion_. His doublet does button, but it had been an extremely long day.

Our friend Tara in her new linen kirtle, and again with the skirt tucked up to show the lining and underskirt. Would you believe the linen started out neon orange?
