Best Answer

Nobody can answer this question except you!

You have to write about something that is interesting to you, or you won't be able to finish the thing. What historical time period are you interested enough to research?

You will need to do enough research so that you can describe every aspect of the era - clothing, culture, swear words, politics, common problems - everything!

If you don't already love the historical time period, you won't do the work, and you won't write the story.

What does Dressed in period clothing mean?

"Period clothing" refers to the type of clothing that was worn during a particular period of history, as examples, during the 1600s... 1800s. Dressing in or wearing clothing of a particular period of time is used during historical re-enactments or during special festivals geared to that historical time. Note that in order to dress in the correct "period clothing", it requires a person to have a good understanding of history and historical events. For example, showing up in 1920s flapper clothes would not do when attending a Civil War (1865-67) historical re-enactment.
