Window of Fort Niagara overlooking Lake Ontario! I am wearing a winged cap of sheerest cotton organdy and a fichu of sheer cotton.

My favorite Bonnet of cream silk with orange/green changable silk trim. It keeps the sun off while looking stylish!

Mom’s robe Anglaise for the 1750’s. It’s open in the front for a stomacher. Made of heavy blue and cream striped cotton, it looks stylish and correct while being comfortable. Looks good with the new hat!

Blue silk/linen Robe D’Anglaise with ruching around the neckline. Rough linen apron with stroked gathers at waist. Striped petticoat of heavy cotton. White linen shift and cap. Despite how I look, I find this attire, especially the corset, very comfortable and easy to function in.

Blue linen jacket with embroidery on the peplums. Not as much worn as a gown, but good for “undress” occasions.
