"Blow the fife! Beat the drums! The reenactments are underway, and to help you celebrat it, here is a great pattern. The pattern includes a jacket with turn back cuffs, pull-on straight legged knickers, a front-buttned vest and bandoleers (functional for holding catridges or ornamentsl). For instance, sew your military coat in blue. Why? Because to prove they were a real army, many colonial militia men wore blue coats - an unofficial uniform. They often studded these coats with brass or pewter buttons. and to protect their shins, the men wore boots or spats."

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

The Great Statesman: Americas earliest statesman, who looked to England for their models, took pride in ordering clothes from London tailors who kept their measurement on file. One of the marks of the statemans status was that he wore the latest English style. His suit was made completely by hand, but that was not a mark of quality. After all, the sewing machine hadnt been invented yet. As time passed, the Colonists ties grew stronger to their own land than to the Mother Country. They started to complain of taxation without representation and threw the Boston Tea Party and declared independence. From the 1776 Make It Real Idea Sheet by Butterick
