The Roaring Girl - Mistress Gallipot

Added Aug 25, 2011

by paffx

Wellington, New ...






A project for my school’s production of “The Roaring Girl” ( in which we were given two costumes to construct. I was given Mistress Gallipot and Neatfoot. Unfortunately I don’t really do the costumes justice – I will be adding photos of them being worn by their rightful actors as soon as I get my hands on them. :) (Hopefully I’ll also get pictures of all the underlayers also).

Mistress Gallipot consists of –
a bumroll
a farthingale
a petticoat
a button down dress with a collar stand
a wrap around apron with bound edges and pockets
and a handmade ruff which attaches to the collar.

Material Notes

quilting, stuffing, calico, cotton blends, lace, buttons, some kind of air-conditioning-fan-heavy-material for the ruff?

    That’s quite a silhouette you’ve managed to create! I’d be very interested in the photos of the innerworkings!

      i’ve added photos of the bumroll and farthingale, which are the very bottom layer and provide the silhouette :)
