Description
Members of Gardiner’s Company participated in a commission by Jamestown Yorktown Foundation to create items for exhibit in the Governor’s House.  We were commissioned to create two sets of clothes to the time period of 1610 to be on display in the clothes press.  This class will present an overview of the artwork used for inspiration, the source of patterns, tailoring techniques, fabrics, trim, and hand work for the suits and shirts.
