I've updated my 14th c European page with the latest pics from Gulf Wars, but here's some others showing my teal linen fitted kirtle.
Here's what I looked like at Saltare:
I know, it's dark and I'm standing funny.
UPDATE: Well, I hope this is better. I need more modeling practice, clearly.
White cotton t-tunic shift.
Blue linen versatile gown based on patterning from Cotte Simple, cut 6" long in back to 'puddle'. Machine sewing on long internal seams; handsewn eyelets (with fabric's thread); handsewn silk facing, dyed to match, with fabric's thread; linen hem facing handsewn with decorative linen thread, and fabric's thread.
Yellow lace (luceted on 0000 knitting needles with crochet cotton). Reproduction brass tip from Historic Enterprises.
Green leather apprentice belt with pewter furniture from Maudey.
Black poulaines from Boots by Bohemond.
Unbleached linen hose, machine sewn since seams don't show. Or green wool hose from Historic Enterprises (size L).
Smocked apron modeled on Luttrell Psalter.
Hair sewn up in braids as in this effigy.
Headwrap is a square of white linen, wrapped and pinned on.
Hood is made by Lord Eoin, and modeled on the 14thc one in Textiles and Clothing, Crowfoot.
Successes: The whole thing looks pretty right, although the colors are very matchy which does remind one of an illustration. Particularly nice with wooden bucket as accessory. Muddy hem contributes to effect.
Improvements yet to be made on this ensemble.
Linen shift, possibly cut to start support process.
Finetuning of fit through bust - not quite snug enough underneath.
Self-fabric buttons on sleeves.
Variations to try.
Change headdress to fillet & barbette with veil, and wear necklace for court.
Improvements for the next versatile gown, or a buttoned cote.
Regularize pattern pieces: the centerback seam isn't quite on my spine; the sides aren't quite at my sides, etc.
