18th century capCap / Mob Cap:  

#1700L24

Starts at $15 to sew + materials
Prices vary widely dependingon design.
linen, cotton, silk ribbon

There are several styles of cap in the 1700's.  Caps were an essential garment for modesty and hygiene.  Wearing a cap will keep your hair cleaner longer than wearing it loose.  It also keeps your hair out of your face, and your hands away from your eyes.

All of our caps are cut on a flattened oval or circle base, with a drawstring in back for adjusting the size. 

 

Measure ear to ear across the top of your hairline, and 1, 2 & 3 on the measurement chart.

 

 

 


 

Pockets: 

#1700L25
$20 per pair 
$10 single
+$10/hr. embroidery

 

Lucy Locket lost her pocket,
Kitty Fisher found it.

Not a penny was there in it,
Only ribbon round it.

 

 

 Pockets were separate accessories that tied around the waist and were worn inside or outside the petticoats.  They were often embroidered with floral designs or pastoral scenes.

 

 

Apron: 
#1700L26
starts at $10  to sew + materials
+ $10/hr. embroidery

Keep your skirts cleaner longer.  Easy to hand wash and adds an extra dimension to any outfit. 

Working aprons were made from linen, wool, and occasionally cotton.  They were used as towels, potholders, pouches, smocks and a general all-purpose household tool.
Upper class aprons were made from fine linen or lightweight cotton gauze and were just a pretty accessory.

 

 

 

 

 

Pinner Apron:
#1700L26B
Starts at $25 to sew + materials

The pinner has a waist tie and a front flap that pins to your bodice.  Great for working over the fire or chopping lots of veggies!

Working class women and children commonly wore pinners.  They are excellent for keeping bedgowns closed.

 

Tucker / Fichu / Modesty Cloth:
#1700L27
Starts at $10 to sew + materials


Also known as a modesty cloth.  It tucks into your bodice around your neck and prevents sunburn on your shoulders and chest.  You can also wear it outside and tuck it into your waistband for a "pigeon breasted" look.

 

 

 

Engageantes:
#1700L28
Start at $20 for single layer + materials
linen, cotton, lace

 

False sleeve ruffles. They are pinned or whip stitched to a gown or chemise to create a froth of lace or fine linen.  One pair of engageantes can be worn with many different gowns.  Add them to a simple gown to make it more formal.

 

Engageantes can be removed and washed much easier than the entire garment. 
Our Engageantes are gathered onto a fixed band with an optional drawstring to gather it in.

 

 

 

 

 

Muff:

#1700L29

Starts at $30, prices vary widely
fur, velvet, satin, silk, wool

+ $5 for inner pocket

+ $10 optional drawstring at edges

 

Muffs were very popular for keeping your hands warm.  They can also do double-duty as a small pocket book or wallet.

Our standard muffs are cut on a rectangle and stuffed with either cotton batting or wool.  Average circumference is 15" & 9" - 12" wide.  Larger muffs will cost more.

 

 

 

 

Mitts:

#1700L30

Start at $20
lightweight linen, cotton
+ $10/hr. embroidery

Mitts were worn to keep the sun off of ladies hands in the summer months & heavier mitts were worn in winter to keep arms warm.  They are fingerless but have a thumb hole & go from mid forearm to elbow, optional drawstring at top hem.  The hand flap can be folded back or worn straight to cover most of your hand.

Early 18th c. versions are from cut cloth, later versions are knitted or crocheted.
