part is the last in this course and has many pages on all sorts of accessories
that complement and make the outfit.
This course is about
the whole look, and learning to be able to decide what looks and is right
and what is wrong for the period. Which fabrics to use, cut, construction
for which level of society, and of course how to finish the whole look
and what people wore.
quite an expert on Restoration clothing when you have done the whole course
back and forth and two and fro and all around again. Look at the pictures,
again and again, the artefacts, the reconstructions, but most of all the
primary and secondary sources. Study them until you think the painted
people are your very best friends. Then you will know that restoration
costumes have truly come alive!
