I have a difficult task and am appealing to the world wide web for help.
I’m playing Phoebe in Shakespeare’s As You Like It. The production is being set in the 1920’s. The character of Phoebe is a young female shepherd. The problem I have is that I cannot find a suitable way of dressing her. I have to find about three outfits which will look like a young, land-working woman, or general rural person from the 1920’s era. Please help.
To find three costumes.
Phoebe, young woman, probably in her twenties. Shepherd- works in the fields all day, but still has a certain allure and attractiveness.
If you have any ideas or see any outfits, I’d love to hear about them.
