Skirts- with wide hips. It was fashionable for women to have little waists. A colf- Like a hat. An apron- Always! The women cook food so they keep the apron on. it also protects their dress from getting dirty. Petticoats- sometimes three or more layers depending on the weather! Bum roll- Padding around the hips
Doublets- Jackets. The men sometimes had slashes in the sleeves. Buttons- Only very, very wealthy people can wear buttons. They were rare. Lace and cuffs- The lace is worn at their collars Socks/stockings- They don’t stay up! So the Pilgrims tied them at the top! Hats-the hats were part of their outfit. They were usually worn.
There are pictures of Pilgrims dressed in black. But they dress in other colors too! They would make dye from flowers, berries, even bugs! Some examples are: (yellow) (green) (pink) (blue/lavender)
Clothing was made from either wool, flax, or leather. Clothing took weeks to make, so many people don’t have much. Flax is prepared by soaking it. Then it is beaten until it got long and stringy. Dirty clumps had to be pulled out of wool, then combing it until it got long and stringy. This is called c arding wool. Flax was gotten from a kind of plant that is used to make linen. Wool was gotten from sheep
Not only girls wore skirts- boys did too! They would wear them until they turned seven, then wear what men wear. Their shoes had no left or right. They would just slip them on! The Pilgrims wore a long linen shirt. This was called a shift. They wore them to sleep, then just put their clothing over it! Their pockets were not attached. They were tied onto their waists. Usually, women have them under the dress.
When you learned about Pilgrims, you see that their hats had buckles attached. But really, there were none. The Pilgrims did not wear buckles. They did not have them on their hats, shoes, or clothing. In fact, buckles weren’t invented yet!!
