Dawn's Costume Guide



Here we are again in early 17th century outfits. My skirt and chemise are exactly as I've described on these pages, but made in ivory satin and peach moire, respectively. I'm wearing a bumroll to help the skirts stand out a bit. The jacket is, I believe, from the Holkeboer book, Patterns for Theatrical Costumes.

John is wearing the same shirt as the picture above, but this time with the fitted breeches and a yellow sash.

This is me alone, reclining on a bench under our peach tree which, thankfully, will not bear fruit this year.

Me again, this time without the jacket, just the corset that should be worn underneath for proper shaping.
