A Clothing How-To for Garments of the Byzantine Empire Men's: Men's costume in Byzantium didn't change too much over the centuries. It consisted of the tunica, the dalmatic, the cloak and shoes or boots. The shapes of the garments were consistent throughout the classes, only the quality of the fabric and trimming distinguished them. Tunica: The tunica was the basic article of clothing in Byzantium. For the lower classes, it was the everyday working garment. For the upper classes, it was the underlayment for some of the richest clothing in history. The tunica was a derivation of the ancient Roman tunica talaris, or tunic to the ankles. They were trim in the sleeve and mostly loose in the body. The more active wearer would gird it up to the shins or knees with a thin belt. The sleeve length Read More

Pilgrim Clothing The Plimoth Plantation Museum also has a web page discussing Pilgrim clothing , and it includes a couple illustrated photographs. WOMEN: A woman's undergarment was a long off-white short-sleeved, linen shirt, resembling a modern-day woman's nightshirt except that it was ribbon-tied at the collar and cuffs and fastened in the front. One or more ankle-length, waist-fastened petticoats were worn. The dress, or gown, consisted of two parts, a bodice and a skirt--sometimes the sleeves were a separate part as well, being tied to the bodice. The bodice or the skirt could be the same or different colors, and were made of wool. The bodice buttoned all the way down the front. The skirt was ankle-length and gathered at the waist. A long-sleeve fitted waistcoat was often worn over the Read More

Historical Boys Clothing

Votes:0
The transition from elegant Little Lord Fauntleroy suits, kilts, sailor suits, and dressy short pants to casual blue jeans and baggy trousers for boys is an interesting study in social history. The mod boy of today would hardly recognize his counterpart of 100 years ago who might have found himself outfitted in a delicate lace collar and fancy velvet knee pants, sailor suits, or kilts. Parents at the time dressed formally and insisted that their children also dress smartly to reflect well on themselves and to demonstrate their social status. Gradually styles changed in the mid 20th Century to more realistic short pants and knickers before the modern incarnation of sneakers, casual baggy jeans and sweatshirts. BOYS' HISTORICAL CLOTHING Parents, especially mothers, used to choose their sons' Read More

Ren Faire: Costumes

Elizabethan Period Costumes Faire Index Page Costume Guide | Definitions Old Patterns | New Patterns | Cloak Patterns Armor | Shoes & Boots | Knives | Retail Clothing lothing during the reign of Elizabeth always reflected the social status of the wearer. There would be no doubt in ones mind about picking out the nobility in any given crowd. Clothing was a direct indication of wealth, much in the manner of imported suits in the present. The cost of clothing was related to the type of fabric and (in the days before synthetic dyes) the color. Purple dye was extracted by crushing thousands of tiny sea snails; similarly, crimson dye was obtained by crushing a certain type of beetle. Processed fabrics such as velvet or corduroy were costly, as were satins and other fine weaves. Cotton, although Read More

Stitches in time: The design of fashion from 1900-1999 Tammy Swift The Forum - 08/15/1999 Fashion isn't just fashion. It's a reflection of our times, a barometer of society. To a lesser degree, fashion has also been art, big business, necessity, fantasy, masterpiece, nuisance. The only sure characteristic of fashion today is that it's for everyone. An extremely efficient ready-to-wear industry and media-saturated world make the newest looks almost instantly accessible. Even if one can't afford the $2,000 Donna Karan dress, one can probably buy a $29 knock-off weeks after it first hit the catwalk. It wasn't always this way. In the late 19th century, fashion was the domain of the wealthy and cosseted. Affluent women were the only ones who had the time and money to devote to the most stylish Read More

MY HOMEPAGE MY SITE MAP THE SITE IS BACK--30 JANUARY 2006! I'm sorry it was unavailable for so long--my host site had a server meltdown! I'll be moving all the regency content on these pages (locutus.ucr.edu/~cathy) to regencyfashion.org over the year of 2006. This locutus site (and for those of you linked to hal.ucr.edu/~cathy, hal is the server that died--R.I.P.) will basically stay the same, and as I clean up html, change images to ones that load faster for the web, and add new content all the new pages/changes will be at the new regencyfashion.org site. I very much appreciate all the links people have made to my site since it started back in 1995 and the many kind emails people have sent.
