A beautiful dress is one thing, but without the right accessories, the picture isn’t complete. Accessories add polish to your outfits, helping to create the perfect historical look.
This week is all about bringing an outfit together. Trim a bonnet, paint a fan, crochet an evening bag, sew a shawl, or dye and decorate a pair of shoes to create the perfect period accessory for yourself.
This challenge is due April 8.
I’ve got so many things I want to do for this challenge! Hats for so many outfits, shoes for so many outfits, I’d love to decorate a fan…we’ll see what I come up with! What are you planning?
Two submissions for this one.
I’ve made a cap but I may get a 2nd accessory done in time…not sure yet.
An Elizabethan ruff! I’m working on the coif to have all the proper neck and headgear. 🙂
The coif and forehead cloth are now complete too!
The medieval cap – I finished challenge 7 before challenge 6, ah well!
Bag with Palestinian embroidery
Mitts! Really looking forward to wearing these.
A pair of linen mitts, also my late stripe project!
[…] Tree Gown (which is why I’m calling it the Tree Bonnet). Lucky for me, it also fulfills the HSF Challenge #7: Accessorize and will coordinate with other items already in my closet (such as my 1819 brown spencer). […]

A day late, but better late than never! I’ve just posted about my new 1815 bonnet.
I made an enormous 1780’s lampshade-muffin hat.
It’s almost a week late, but at least I finished this one.

A lobster tail bustle for the stripe dress from the last challenge 🙂
I have finally finished an extremely labor-intensive project and am so pleased with the results. Please take a look at my 18th century pocketbook:
I sewed an 18th century silk muff.
