lots of pics that might help here http://cadieux.mediumaevum.com/burgundian-gown.html What an interesting site - loads of good pics :D Thanks for the link, Sally :) I have to disagree with a couple of interpretations and some of the terminology in the captions to the gown pics though. To be snippy....

ooh also: it seems to me that the pattern as given is rather profligate with material, and that the more likely form would have the tie pieces forming a straight line down, probably, from the rounded-off point B. So that their back line would be a straight line down (as drawn) from an imaginary poin...

Hi Annis, Try the pattern at the bottom of page 199. I've not tried this one myself, it looks slightly odd to me as point B doesn't really want to be a right angle, I don't think, I'm thinnking that corner wants to be a curve to follow the shape of the top of the back of your head+hair... Cut it in ...

Hi all :) a few of the examples of particolored clothing is undoubtedly English -- the torturers at North Cove , and this jailer at Sporle . (And I think there's more discussion of particolor as used in livery in Fashion in the Age of the Black Prince , too.) Nice pics. 8) Those paintings are of men...

Cheers Annis :) There's a picture of dancing shepherds (unfortunately it's Dutch not English) is C15th. The book of hours is C15th. I'm afraid it isn't more specific and they are the only ones that show hoods that have a date. I find it so frustrating when pics aren't dated properly :evil: I'll PM y...

yep. 8) short - the hood bit only just reaches the shoulders - but the liripipe can be nice and long. TBH they are a bit rubbish for warmth purposes - a neckerchief is a good addition to one's kit for cold/sunny weather.

open-fronted hoods with liripipes are good for women in WOTR, unless research has moved on?.... Almost always black or red, no visible lining, very plain (definitely no dags lol :lol: )
