Linen tunic

Linen Tunic XII-XIIIth Century

And another tunic. This one is completely hand-made, from 100% linen, with cotton threads.
I based it on a pattern of an Egyptian shirt from the early XIII-th. century(I think)
It turned a bit tighter than I expected, but nonetheless it’s very comfortable, especially during the summer.



Woolen Hood 14-th century


This is a hood made from 100% wool.  Machine sewed, and finished by hand. The dagging is also done by hand. It is based on a series of images, and a few finds, of the late XIV th. century.  It was the first such hood I made, and I have found it very comfortable and useful, even in modern day environment.
