The 1660s:
Restoration Costume Comes to Life

LouiseI am delighted to welcome you to this free online workshop about clothes in England in the 1660s. Please note that the focus is on England, not on other parts of Britain.

I hope that I will be able to share with you the beauty of this period and give each of you a hand in delving into the intricacies of the costumes of the period, their cut, construction, colour, materials, accessories. While I cannot boil down many years of research into 4 weeks, I hope I can give you the tools with you on the way to do your own research, to find the books that are best for the subject, museums -in the flesh is the best, but online if must be - the best way of research and the ability to put in the end together a costume including accessories that is correct for the chosen person to be portrayed of a certain social status.
