An excellent resource for clothing of the high middle ages Many books on medieval clothing are intended for those wishing to build costumes rather than clothing, with information on how to make garments having a superficial appearance of belonging to a particular era, but little in the way of information on authentic construction. Other books are geared toward scholarly research, and excellent for the advanced recreationalist, but without much practical information on garment construction. This volume has the best of both, combining solid research and clear “how to make it” instructions in one source The book covers measurements, patterns, suggested materials, and methods of construction, with over a hundred patterns for shirts or smocks, cotes, doublets, kirtles, gowns and cotehardies, hose, cloaks, and appropriate headwear and accessories. There is information on children’s clothing as well. Well and thoroughly illustrated (with both drawings and photos of models wearing constructed medieval clothing,) the book is accessible to the novice or intermediate costumer and sewer, and still a good and enjoyable source for the advanced historic clothing researcher.
Fantastisk bok med enkla och tydliga mönster som gjorts av någon med kunskap om historiska dräkter.
