The servant was dressed simply in a shift, blouse, overdress,
petticoat, hat and shoes. The colors were selected to match
the general blues of the Espinosas.
The overdress is made of a denim-like material that hung well without
the use of stiff petticoats or farthingales which seemed inappropriate
for the working class. Originally all women were to have
period shifts to go under the clothes for their own comfort. We
built these for the main characters and those who had to wear the
petticoats of crinoline or the farthingales, but not for Pilar or
Marta, the lower class servants.
