The original First Lady, Martha Washington is the powerful woman behind President George Washington. George was an incredibly important general during the American Revolution, and as the first president, he set many precedents that still are upheld today. With the Women's Martha Washington Costume, you can become the most important first lady in history. This costume features a blue and white dress, and a matching mobcap. This dress is cotton, making it comfortable for wearing at Halloween, when it can still be a bit warm. The silk and wool of the dresses that were actually worn at the time would have been far too hot for that weather. This costume is perfect for Halloween, or for some sort of staged production that takes place in colonial America.
