A boy’s skeleton suit

Here are some images of a recently commissioned skeleton suit for a young boy. The suit consists of three pieces- full length broad fall trousers, a short unlined jacket, and a white shirt with collar. The skeleton suit was popular for boy’s from the 1780s to the late 19th century.

About Susan

Hi! My name is Susan and I am a historian, seamstress, teacher, mother, and wife. My passion for history has manifested itself in the art of recreating clothing from different periods of time. Growing up in the American South, I am heavily schooled in the art of recreating clothing from the 19th century. After nearly a decade of immersing myself primarily in the Victorian period, I found the need to branch out and explore other periods of time. However, it is my connection with the American South and the clothing of rural America that continues to be the driving force behind my designs.
