WEFOUNDCentury of Style: The Imperial Palace Auto Collection, Las Vegas, Nevada by Rasmussen, Henry (1990) Hardcover


  For reasons of decency, we start with a lady who already wears the shift, a cap and stockings. Can't be havin' with pictures of wimmin without a cap on. ;)

The over-knee stockings are fastened with garters just below the knee. The stocking page will also explain why it is below the knee, not above.

If she hasn't done so yet, she now has to put on the shoes unless she intends to wear mules as she does here, or has a maid who will fasten the shoe buckles . As soon as she has the stays on, she will hardly be able to bend down to fasten them herself.

The Purim schpiel was based on  Hamilton,  and the costumes Joe and I altered/reused/repurposed/added to were 18th Century style, more specifically Revolutionary War style.  From scratch I made several jabots or cravats that I copied from one I found that buttons on to a blouse.  They aren’t 100% authentic by far, but if you need that quick final touch on a men’s Revulutionary War or French court or basically 1740s to 1780 costume, below are photos and instructions.

You’ll need some white or ivory lace or eyelet lace trim that’s already gathered up (as opposed to the totally flat kind, 1 3/4″ to 2 1/4″ wide, and probably only about 60″ of it, as well as less than a yard of white or ivory cotton, quilting weight or lighter, matching thread, and either some velcro or snaps.

First cut a neck band 5 or 6″ wide and the wearer’s neck measurement long plus 2 1/2″ for overlap and so it isn’t skin tight (people’s necks are from 13 or 14″ to 17 or 18″). Cut a base for the lace 7″ wide and 8″ tall.
