For the girls, I found inspiration in period paintings that showed women and men in warm earthy tones such as yellow, pink, and orange. All of the dyes in the 17th century would have been obtained from natural sources, thus I wanted the colors to look as though they could have been hand dyed. Secondly, I chose to use natural fabrics such as raw silk, cotton, and linen, to mimic the texture and the availability of the natural fabrics used in the 17th century.
