Collection: Getting Dressed Guides

In many areas of historical dress, there are a plethora of sources on how to construct garments.  But this body of knowledge is lacking one essential piece — a simple guide on how to get dressed.  What pieces are essential to be dressed properly?  What garments can be omitted for reasons of comfort without compromising the accuracy of the outfit?  Where is the line between costume and clothing?

Reconstructing History’s Getting Dressed Guides are meant to fill that void.

These downloadable guide, written by clothing historian Kass McGann and backed by 20 years of research, will tell you everything you need to know to dress historically accurately.

The Getting Dressed Guides are not intended to be books of all knowledge.  They are simply guides to teach you how to get dressed historically properly for this class, period, and location.  “Everything you need to know to get dressed.”
