... Hi, Linda. Garsault's pattern draft for a mantelet has been reproduced in many places. Here's one: http://www.18cnewenglandlife.org/18cnel/cloaks.htm Youyuoitrew
A few sample topics about reenacting the 18th century include getting started, making clothes, shopping for reenacting goods, choosing an impression, reenacting in the third vs. first person, staging scenarios, performing research, announcements of events, workshops and seminars, “after action reports”, reenacting on the cheap, and “stitch counting”. All discussions are welcome that pertain to the 18th century and to reliving it.
