Transcript of Puritan Clothing
Types Of Clothing
The Puritans wore simple, plain clothing that was usually in black, white or grey.Puritans dressed very conservatively, usually with sad colors and modest cuts. Gowns with low necklines were filled in with high-necked smocks and wide collars.
Puritan men wore black clothes and and kept their hair short. They wore Collars outside armour, cloaks, gowns and un-padded doublets and jerkins for a utility jacket. Wrists were finished with wide white cuffs and they wore stockings with boots frequently. Men can wear a scarf the same way a woman does. The difference in it is that it should be darker colors and be a little bit bigger than a lady's scarf. Men can just wrap it behind
Puritan women wore a simple, no-frills version of the clothing of their time:
1. A linen smock as their only undergarment
2. Several skirts called "petticoats", wool or maybe linen
3. Bodies, known today as a corset
4. A jacket or gown, probably wool, in a drab color (not black, which was an expensive dye).
5. A linen cap and probably a linen neck handkerchief, both for modesty.
6. Woolen stockings and leather shoes tied with strings or ribbon.
At around age 6 or 7, boys and girls began to wear clothes that looked like those of their parents and older siblings. The first time a boy was dressed in grown-up clothes was a special event. His family said he “was breeched.” Because he was wearing breeches, he was no longer a baby. He would not spend all his time with his mother and sisters near the house. Now he would begin to spend more time with his father, learning to do men’s work.
Puritans and Pilgrims dressed alike they had a lot of similar women skirts and men clothing. When I looked up things about the puritans there was a lot of things coming up about the pilgrims, to me they were alike in dressing , they just had different names.
