To Assemble a Beginner's Wardrobe:
  1. Begin with a shift, two petticoats, a bedgown, neckhandkerchief and cap. You will also need proper shoes and stockings, which we do not carry. Note--if you will be developing an impression which is Middle Colonies, German-American, or Quaker, let us know and we will equip you with a short gown instead of the bedgown.
  2. Next you'll want jumps or half-boned stays, and then you can be measured for a gown. You may want to have an apron, and some extra shifts or caps.
  3. Your basic gown can be dressed up with sleeve-flounces, a nicer cap and neckhandkerchief, a nicer petticoat and maybe a rump or hips. Accessorized with the correct hair-style, jewelry, fan, gloves, etc, you can wear your basic gown and be well dressed enough for just about any reenactment event except the most formal of balls.
  4. Eventually, you may want to start expanding your wardrobe to suit your specific persona and your reenacting needs-a cloak or a worsted gown and petticoat for cold-weather events, a wrapper for wearing around camp early in the mornings, a stylish jacket for a change of "look", and then perhaps a wedding gown, a formal ball gown, or a riding habit. Wherever your reenacting interests take you, we can ensure that you will be properly dressed!
