late 13th/ early 14th C surcoat design

Post by matilda »

Hi All,

a query,

GoW neeeds a new surcoat - I have the material for a base and once I've dyed it work can begin.

I was lazy when I made mine, so I'm not going to have splits up the side like mine, just back and front. Secondly the heraldry, again, when I did mine I just made a small shield shaped design and stitched it ( quite badly!) to the front. Are there any pictures of this being used like this, or do I somehow have to find enough bits of material to sew the design on so that it covers the whole surcoat?

I might as well get it right this time !!
