I've been eyeing this image of Lysbeth van Duvenvoorde (c.1430) for ages and decided this was the time to make my houppelande dreams come true!
My outfit choice for the Manuscript Challenge! Details of the challenge can be found here: http://indemejarecristi.wordpress.com/2014/08/14/i-challenge-you/.
A few months ago I made hoods for friends that were invested as Baron and Baroness of their local SCA group. Hoods are one of my favorite go-to accessories to make an outfit complete -- and warm, too!
I made 2 black linen hoods, one with a long liripipe, one without. The baronial arms are a felt applique livery badge.
