Upper class Children
Upper class children wore the same things as the Upper class adults just in a smaller version.
Peasants wore dull colors such as colors that looked faded and inexpensive. Bright colors were saved for royality, upperclass and nobles. They wore multi layered clothing due to their nature work and the coldness in England. They wore thick jackets called "Doublets". They also wore "knickers" and "jerkins" which were like "doublets" just loose in fitting.
