Peasant class: they did have color at all, except browns,
bashes, whites and blacks, same style as the middle
class. yet they wore bonnets instead of anything fancy.The woman would wear a tight, blue, front-laced bodice with shoulder straps over a loose, square sleeved shift. In some pictures, we can even see the hem of the shift under her petticote, and would appears to be wearing only one.
