Thanksgiving Pictures


Pictures of the 17th Century outfits made for the Thanksgiving get-together!
I started with the 1610 jacket pattern from Norah Waugh's The Cut of Women's Clothes, and used it as a base for all the bodices. The linen smocks are just the basic square construction with a slightly different neckline, and ties at throat and wrists.

Aspen - white linen ruffled smock (chemise) with a gored jacket and skirt from a length of green wool that had been in my stash for some time. Trimmed with grey/blue bias tape and metal buttons.

  
Carolina - linen cap, brown wool vest, linen stripe skirt and blue linen apron

Me - linen smock, 1860s corset (hey - it worked! :^), black wool jacket, and blue wool skirt stolen from an 1860s dress - trimmed with black braid.




The family! The guys wore their white 1860s shirts with vest or their Medieval leather tunics.

  
Mom - linen smock, brown linen jacket with metal buttons, and lavendar wool skirt from an 1860s dress.

The littlest brother!

The get-together was so much fun! We got to meet lots of new friends, and had a grand time. :^)
