Colonial Costume Information

Page history last edited by Ms. Noah 10 years, 10 months ago

Boys’ Costume

  • A plain white, long-sleeved shirt
  • A plain vest
  • Dark-colored pants (not jeans)- roll them up to your knees or cut them just below the knees to create breeches
  • Long, white or dark-colored socks that come over your knees
  • Knit cap, wide-brimmed hat, or tricorn hat


Girls’ Costume

  • A long skirt (solid, striped, floral, plaid, or checkered) with a long-sleeved plain white blouse OR a long dress with solid, striped, floral, plaid, or checkered fabric
  • White socks or tights
  • A long apron that ties at your waist (solid, striped, floral, plaid, or checkered)
  • White mob cap
  • A handkerchief or cloth napkin, tied at the neck (optional)


There is no need to buy an outfit! One option is to transform the clothing that you already have in your closets at home into a colonial outfit. Another option is to contact a 6th grade parent or the parent of a recent graduate to see if their child still has a colonial costume that you can borrow. Below are pictures of students' colonial costumes from last year for your reference.
