    What precise era are you doing?? And WHERE??

    Fwiw, my beloved "Duckie", when she was physically able to go to reenactments, variously portrayed:
    1. a "lower-working class woman from Holly Springs, MS, who followed her husband/CS Sergeant to war in 1862",
    2. a "mixed-blood Choctaw/English/Scots" pioneer farmeress from the Southland in the AWI/post-AWI era & who emigrated to Nacogdoches, New Spain in the early 1820s
    AND
    3. (occasionally) the elder sister of a CSA Corporal (and later) Prisoner of War from just west of New Bern, NC "visiting" him in camp" OR at the Unionist DEATH CAMP at Point Lookout MD, circa 1864.

    yours, satx

    I made the stockings, but not the mocs. I found them on Etsy

    Good looking outfit, Dear Lady.

    OK, so which outfit do you find more comfortable to wear and/or your preferece, the girlie clothes or the hunting shirt and breeches?

    I was wondering if your long rifle would have too much length of pull. Looks like the rifle does not fit you too bad at all.

    Really have to give you credit for doing a 1770's impression in CO. It can be difficult enough back here on the East Coast where a lot more folks do it.

    Thank you Sir!

    For getting on the ground, the breeches are much more mobile. Course if my knees worked right, it would be even easier still. The breeches/shirt is defiantly cooler. Course I can flap the skirt around and make a nice breeze too! LOL!!!

    The jumps do restrict some of my upper body motion also. Nothing that interferes with shooting though. It does give me more upper body stability for shooting too.

    I love that rifle! Its a dream to shoot.

    Yes, doing Colonial here in CO has its challenges. Our little group is growing at a surprising rate though. From our 15 at the encampment last October to almost 40 for the play day tomorrow. I'm finding that many people are transitioning from Mt Man to Colonial, and we are drawing folks from surrounding states that have no Colonial re-enactors at all. Got two guys that may be here for the play day from South Dakota! It seems I've become a horrible enabler!

    Great work.

    Good to hear you're finding some interested folks, too

    :hatsoff:

    If you can make stockings, you can probably make some Mocs with ease. Ive learned a thing or two. Of those wear out, ask away!

    Awesome that you made your stockings - ''tis not an item people usually tackle. :hatsoff:

    Oh I remember the stockings conversation. Really awesome that it's an item that's 100% produced by your own hand. Ive watched the entire wool process before - shearing, washing, carding, spinning - it's quite a bit of skilled labor. What a truly awesome thing you're doing.

    It's not quite the same, but when I nail the bullseye with a bullet Ive poured with a primitive mold sweating and squinting through smoke, I seem to get it. It's an eye opening experience.

    Good on ya, ma'am

    Thank you!

    I think anything we produce from start to finish resonates very deeply in our souls. Its a labor of love.
