> Elizabeth and I are glad to announce the new Ladies Wrapper pattern is now available. It is #118 and you can see it on the website www.lafnmoon.com
> This pattern is extremely versatile. It spans 1840s to 1860s. It is a Morning Dress, Wrapper, Work Dress, and Maternity Dress. The difference between all those takes a little explaining. See bottom of email. It is a terrific "beginner" dress, and since it is adjustable, perfect for costume closets at historic sites, not to mention outfitting a bunch of women of all sizes. It is perfectly appropriate for those who reenact at our rougher outposts as it was the real "pioneer" dress, and can be gussied up for fancier ladies at home. There are several pinterest boards for wrappers for inspiration.
> Please tell any of your friends about this who might be interested who are on different lists, especially Civil War. We would be grateful.
> As for a description of the different types of clothing, including wrappers and the occasions on which they were worn, The following link should take you to a link to www.openlibrary.org and the book "The Art of Dressing Well" by Sarah Ann Frost written in 1870. It is a treasure. See the sections on "Morning Dress" for information about the kind of dresses in this pattern.
> Thanks so much,
> JoAnn and Elizabeth
