Pilgrim / Puritan Lady Costume
This high quality costume is a black knit pilgrim dress with white cotton collar, apron and hat. Women sizes medium or large.
Although Pilgrim costumes for women are charismatic in the simplicity of their color and design. While Indian costumes go for earth tone colors, pilgrims on the other hand are dressed up in a clad of black and white ensemble. The dress is usually black with white collar and sleeve cuffs with accessories such as a matching white apron and headdress. Some revisions of the costume can even be made by using an existing black dress and adorning it with a square collar that is characteristic of the colonial period. Hats and headbands can also be made to match the outfit. Simple black low-heeled shoes will complete the attire. A knee-length dress for a little girl can be made into a complete pilgrim costume when added the necessary adjustments while a pair of long sleeve shirt and pants for a boy will go a long way.
The attire can be completed in simple steps that start with the basic black outfit. The collar can be added later by cutting out a square piece of white cloth or felt that runs the length of the shoulders. It will then be folded in half and a triangle will be cut out in front to finish off. It should have a hole in the middle that is enough to let the head through for it to be worn. The accessories follow. Belts and cuffs in gold or white can be added to create more depth in the attire. The bonnet is the finishing touch to the costume and marks the beginning of dressing up as a pilgrim.
