Historical Costumes Made Easy

One of the most exciting and stimulating ways of bringing a period of history to life is through getting the pupils to dress in the way that ordinary people (or the elite) dressed during the relevant era.

It might be the Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings… whoever it was, all children love dressing up, and this is dressing up with a purpose.

But… quite reasonably many parents balk at the idea of making a costume from one of these periods.

Which is why we have produced a new and extended edition of “Roman, Anglo-Saxon and Viking Children’s Costumes.” This is a copiable book so that you can take the relevant section and either put it on the school website or learning platform, or print out sections and give them to parents.

In each section of the book there are details of what people wore at that time, full page line drawings of the costumes with close ups of specific parts of the costume, plus separate sections for male and female, adults and children, peasants and the upper class.

Then there are sections on hairstyle , caps and hats, jewellery, leggings and shoes, belts, cloaks, pouches, dresses, tunics, and (for the sake of completeness) under garments.

For each item mentioned there are patterns, sizing information, materials and so forth – and all of this data is repeated for the Romans, the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings.

In over 150 pages of A4 there is everything anyone would ever want, giving you and the parents who make the costumes, a massive choice so that it is possible (should you wish it) to have every child in the class come in showing off a different type of costume.

Everything is here, you need no other volume.
