Shirts for ceremonies regalia

The 18th Century trade shirt is acceptable for everyone (men’s and women’s regalia.) We will have staff on site with sewing machines to help convert standard button-down dress shirts to these. If you want to make one, bring a loose fitting shirt in natural fabric (cotton, linen, muslin, etc.) Large print calicos in reds, yellows, and blues were common. Bright solid colors and white were also used. If you can find a shirt without a pocket it’s best but one with a pocket will work. Men would wear the shirt over a breechclout. Women would wear the shirt over a wrap skirt of wool approximately 60” wide by 40” long.
