Good one, thanks.

Here's the same thing for a more formal, upper class outfit.

That same group does several vids on dress, notable is how smooth the ladies are putting on the clothing. They know their stuff.

It's a great video for the Ladies when learning how to dress with period clothing and it is great for the men to understand why it takes them longer to dress.

I could have taken a couple of tips from the video the first time I dressed as a Private Soldier in the Major's Coy of the 42nd Royal Highland Regiment with my Philabeg (Short Kilt). It was a bit daunting my first time even though I had worn 18th century clothing before.

Fortunately from the experience of wearing a leather stock around my neck many years earlier, I did not put on my cloth stock until most of my other clothes were on. I did figure out I had to put on my "Diced Bag Hose" after the shirt and before putting on the stock. I also buckled on my shoes with just the hose and shirt on and that proved a very good thing to do before adding other clothes.

So even though I had no petticoats or other "under garments," I can certainly "feel" for what the Ladies have to do to dress in period clothing.

Just saw a you tube vid called “Seventeenth century dress recovered from shipwreck” I don’t know how to link to it.
Was a wreck recovered from Texal island off the coast of the Netherlands. Several distaff Items in a seatrunk from a wealthy young lady.
