Early 14th century German manuscripts with funky clothes:

Weingartner Liederhandschrift: http://digital.ub.uni-duesseldorf.de/content/titleinfo/1075925
(pages 25 onwards, I think page 33 is adorable.)

It does look very 13th century to me in shape, and it's sleeveless. How cool.

Katrin Kania, the archaeologist who studied the gown left a comment on my livejournal, and has posted on her own blog about the dress in English.

Go! Visit! And thank-you Katrin for being so kind.

First up, a photo I would love to know more about. Do any knitters or Tudor-clothing fans recognise it?

Edit: Thanks [livejournal.com profile] mmcnealy and [livejournal.com profile] jillwheezul.
If you go to http://www.museumoflondonprints.com/ and search for 'knitted' you get nice photos, and some other knitted things.

Second, das Bußgewand der heiligen Elisabeth [the penance-garment of St. Elisabeth]

I found out about it through the Surviving Garments Database, looking through the publication list. It's 'Garment No.: 648' and is dated to the 13th century.

This all ties in with the posts on brooches in Lithuania, I promise.

Kopfbedeckungen  für Frauen im Deutschland des 13. Jahrhunderts had a picture of a 'hair sack' from Naumburg cathedral, as does bildindex, who is from the slave girl from Peter's Renunciation (From the Web Gallery of Art) Check out the relatively good picture of her entire outfit. Hooray!

But even the girl has an annular brooch holding her cloak in place, as do the more famous sculptures of the Queens Uta, Reglindis and the others nobody seems to pay much attention to. (But they show quite clearly the collar of Uta can stand up or lie flat.)

With the hair sack, there is an attempted reconstruction here. This version just treats it as another way to wrap a veil.

13th century pleated hats and bands (so, we're not quite into pleated veils yet...)

My own quick and nasty translation about the Spanish pleated stuff.

I prefer the style with barbette, fillet and veil, not entirely sure why. I think it's because headwear is one of the things a lot of people think about the least (and wear the least) so going completely overboard by wrapping myself up in linen might be over-compensating.

I also want to stick to more German sources, since I plan to move into Polish fashion next, and as far as I can tell they are very similar styles. Anyone with better knowledge of 13th century Polish fashion, please correct me!

You know it's approaching exam time -- my desire for sewing tunics has increased. (Weird but true, my handsewn tunics are all from during Swot Vac.)

Anyway, I'm planning on making a tunic based on the Kragelund tunic, with the interesting sleeve. I've pieced and sewn one of the sleeves, and am halfway through the second sleeve, so it's proceeding nicely. Soon I will have a new wool tunic in a brown herringbone twill.

I want to have a go at 13th-14t century stuff, because then I can wear ruffled headwear and kruseler veils. :)
