A simple life called for simple clothes. This traditional colonial style costume is indicative of what all the pilgrim girls wore. Ankle-length dress with long sleeves is adorned with a wide rounded collar, white cuffs and a plain apron. The lone accessory was the bonnet that tied under the chin. There was no time to mess with frillstoo much work to be done. Milking cows, churning butter, making soap or candles. And, of course, cooking. Yes, the pilgrims had a hard life, but history was made, and America was born. When it's time to recreate a scene from the first Thanksgiving, attend a Colonial Day at school or even go trick or treating on Halloween, this Pilgrim Costume is perfect. Who knows? Your child may prefer the no-hassle style of not worrying about choosing what to wear every daythis could become their new uniform. Ok, probably not, but it is fun to pretend to be of another time period and learn to appreciate how good we have it nowadays.
