Puritan Button

Posted on Saturday, November 7, 2009 in dress shirts

How did the puritan women dress up?

i am doing a project about the women in puritan times.
did they wear buttons,etc??

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 neckhandkerchief, both for modesty.
6. Woolen stockings and leather shoes tied with strings or ribbon.

The jacket might be buttoned, but most women's clothing tied or laced to accommodate the changes of pregnancy and nursing.

Here is an article on the clothing of the Pilgrims:

and a photo from Plimoth Plantation:

This engraving is a from a bit later in the 1600's, but gives the general idea:
