So many pretty dresses part 4- The American Colonial Era

Going back to  early years of America, part 4 focuses on the American Colonial Era. Notice how different the outfits are even from all the eras. Even though they are long dresses they are still completely different.

This link is to an online exhibit through the Colonial Williamsburg museum that allows the viewer to look at men , women, and children’s clothing from about 1600-1850. Its really cool!

The video below is also from Williamsburg, but this shows what it takes to make a dress like this and how it all fits together.
