Winter Workshop Series: 1770s Straight-bodied Coats
102 Fort Rd., Ticonderoga, NY 12883
In this two-day workshop, examine details from surviving 1770s civilian coats, cutting and beginning assembly of your own. Practical wool coats that buttoned all the way to the waist remained popular even as fashionable coats increasingly cut away along the front. Build one of these lined wool coats that were a mainstay of dress in New England and the rest of the American colonies going into the Revolutionary War.
