Hi all!

Archaeologia historica has put some of it's volumes online in PDF format, so here are the clothing-related ones I could find:

Archaeologia historica 36(2) 20011

Milena Bravermanová: "Fragment of a Funeral Dress and a Kruseler Veil from the Casket of Czech Queens in the Royal Tomb, St. Vitus Cathedral" / "Fragment pohřebních šatů a závoj, tzv. kruseler, z rakve českých královen z královské hrobky v katedrále sv. Víta"
pages 281-312, discusses a kruseler veil, another scarf, and a sleeveless surcote-looking garment that was believed to have had a separate, gathered skirt!

Archaeologia historica 35 (1-2) 2010
Milena Bravermanová: "Funeral Attire of a Czech Queen from the Royal Tomb in St. Vitus Cathedral" / "Pohřební šaty jedné z českých královen z královské hrobky v katedrále sv. Víta"
pages 202-222, discusses a possible sleeveless surcote (it's unclear if there were originally sleeves or not), and a pillow.

Also of interest in volume 35...

Zdeněk Měřínský-Rudolf Procházka: "Some Aspects of Everyday and Festive Life of the Mediaeval Man in Moravia and Silesia" /"K některým aspektům každodenního a svátečního života středověkého člověka na Moravě a ve Slezsku"
pages 7-44

Tomáš Durdík: "Some Notes on Everyday Life in Czech Castles" / "Několik poznámek k české hradní každodennosti"
pages 45-62 -- puzzle jugs, what looks like a nutcracker, gaming pieces and other interesting things

Markéta Tymonová: "Archaeological Evidence of the Everyday Life of the Inhabitants of Cvilín Castle in the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Age" / "Archeologické doklady každodenního života obyvatel hradu Cvilína v období středověku a raného novověku"
pages 63-79

Zdeňka Měchurová: "The World of Mediaeval Children and Games in Archaeological Sources" / "Středověký svět dětí a her v archeologických pramenech"
pages 95- 107: plenty of whirligigs rattles and ceramics.

Petr Žákovský: "Fresco with a Motif of Wrestlers from Švihov Castle in the Context of the Development of European Combat Systems"/ "Freska s motivem zápasníků z hradu Švihova v kontextu vývoje evropských bojových systémů"
pages 310-332 - covers Fechbücher, sculpture, frescoes, manuscript images, and looks really interesting!

František Gabriel-Lucie Kracíková: "On the Function of Small Ceramic Sculptures"/"K funkci drobné keramické plastiky" pp. 225-232
Lots of images of ceramic 'dolls' or figurines, naturally enough wearing interesting clothes.

Čeněk Pavlík: "Dragons on Gothic and Renaissance Tiles, or the Magic World of the Imagination" / "Draci na kachlích gotiky a renesance aneb kouzelný svět fantazie" pages 273-301

Oh wow!

For fans of pleated headdresses, Middelaldercentret has put out another paper, this time on the pleated textiles from Burgos Cathedral.

It will take a while to download, and then read and digest all of the information. Especially when you're the sort of person who should be doing other things, like studying.

Edit: Google seems to have picked up on this livejournal, but not the Middelaldercentret page itself, which is here:

Frescoes from the monastery of St. Jacob, Ląd, Wielkopolska (14th c.)

Has striped clothes and ruffled kruseler headdresses. (Which reminds me, I need to scan in some pictures of German manuscripts)
An interesting picture of two women wearing cottes(?) and kruseler

I can't remember if I've linked to this page yet.

Roman-era Poland at the Poznan Archaeological Museum.

Edit: A Blue Bohemian Bathhouse Babe, and illustration. (Is it just me, or is the girl in the green dress in the illustration have a Barbie-doll proportioned rack?)

I've managed to end up Blogsmashed with "So you think you can Dance, Kragelund"... God.

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

Krusekanter i 1200-tallets kvindehovedtøjer

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. :)

It's tricky not to go traipsing off into 15-16th century northern european dress and not see any kruseler. I'd previously associated them with Czech/Bohemian dress, but they're also popping up in Polish and German information. And, naturally Spain, the home of exciting frilly hats.

Anyway, as part of my mission to make and wear interesting headwear, I started to look a little more closely.

Camilla Luise Dahl "Krusekanter i 1200-tallets kvindehovedtøjer" in Peter Vemmning (ed.), Middelaldercentrets Nyhedsblad, vinteren 2006/07, pp. 15-19. Nykøbing: Middelaldercentret.
Has extant ruffled veils from Spain!

And the article right after:

"En kruset hoveddug; Catherine de Beauchamps hovedtøj." in Peter Vemmning (ed.), Middelaldercentrets Nyhedsblad, vinteren 2006/07, pp. 20-21. Nykøbing: Middelaldercentret.
There's no author, but I think it was written by this woman.

Different ways of making the veil
Gathered, to look like the Polish statue I mentioned a few days ago:

Woven, on a rigid heddle

Adding a tablet-woven band

Images of Kruseler:
From dolls found in Nuremberg, including diagrams of the different styles.

Some more dolls, and a 14th century statue:

Polish statues of women, from the SIG list:

The Frilled Headwear project, lots of talk about 1 year ago about having a book published soon?
