Period Clothing

The Wm Penn Sewing & Mending Society will be holding its first session in the Crozier House this Saturday, August 21 from 10am-2pm!  We hope that this will be only the beginning of a fun and productive program at Pennsbury, and there is room for anyone willing to help out.  We need beginners and experienced sewers and anyone willing to learn how to make lucette string, so please join us and lend a hand!

As a special treat, I am including this link to an interactive game by Colonial Williamsburg!  It’s based on clothing from 75 years after Pennsbury’s time period, but it’s similar in many ways and you can see how clothing evolved between Penn and the Revolution.  Have fun!
