Lancaster Cemetery Living History

Vince in his Linen Paletot, Black Wool & Silk Vest, and Linen & Cotton Plaid Pants. The straw hat is an Amish hat that I shaped to look like an 1860s straw hat. I lined the inside with white silk, added a leather band inside, and a 3/4" wide chocolate brown ribbon around the outside. I also made his silk cravat, which I based on the lovely cravats from Corner Clothiers.

A detailed view of Gaye's Cotton Dress.

The bodice is a yoked gathered bodice, with gathered self fabric trim at the bottom of the yoke and also down the back of the sleeves. The sleeves are coat sleeves gathered into the armhole. The skirt is cartridge pleated at the waist.

The back of the dress is fitted.
