18th Century - The Colonial Age

Homespun Living History Guild




18th Century


The Homespun Living History Guild’s guiding impression for the 18th century differs little from that of the 19th century.  We portray the rural or working class family rather than the wealthy elite.  Our clothing reflects our station in life, as does our camp equipage.  The information given here is meant as a basic guide for members interested in the 18th century, it is brief, and will be expanded on as time goes by.  For now it is limited to women’s clothing, but as interests develop we will add information on men’s clothing and children’s clothing.

On to the 18th century fashion guidelines.....
