    I know this would have been a normal part of her everyday wear, but I wanted to comment on her apron. It speaks volumes about her character, and how many different roles she plays in the castle. From working hard in the kitchen, to making sure the Clan’s food is ready, to accepting visitors and making them comfortable, and finally, her role as a grandmother. It speaks of comfort, warmth, and hard work. Love Mrs. Fitz, and when I first saw her in EP2, I was astounded at the way Annette played her. Mrs. Fitz came alive, right in front of me.

    Love Mrs. Fitz, she is perfect as is her costume as well! Love love love all the costumes♡♡ Terry, the picture with the gold dress on your page, is this something to look forward to when Jamie & Claire are in Paris? It is absolutely stunning!

    Wondering aloud here – back in the 18th century (or earlier or later, for that matter), when women had so many pieces and layers of clothing, would the “downstairs” or poorer ladyfolk have fastenings in the front because they didn’t have someone to help dress them?

    If someone wanted to re-create Mrs. Fitz’s costume, what do you suppose would be the best way? She seems not to be wearing stays, and it looks like a simple white(ish) blouse with a plain brown jacket and skirt (made of wool?) and, of course, her apron. Her cap doesn’t seem to be a mobcap, bust something else all together.
