Here are some images and text that I just wanted to save for later reference.... )

Now, I seem to remember when I first said I was getting this book - SOMEONE needed to get more information on this dress. So when the book arrived, I noticed the dress was in it and took a *lot* of photos (it was a pretty big section of the book).

If you happen to know who wanted this, and can let them know it is here, that would be great!

While I haven't nutted out enough to try making my own net cawls (yet), I thought this might come in handy for someone, and perhaps for me later!

No, it's not for catching fish.... )

The following item is a coat housed in the Berne Historical Museum that the folks at the Abegg Foundation believe was originally plundered 'from the Burgundians'. I believe others have documented items about this coat in their own journals in the past, if memory servers there was some alteration of the cut during the coats lifetime - although I cannot recall now if that was mearly from sizing (as described in the attached text) or if the coat was cut down from another garment.

I *really* love this coat!  )

Sadly, this was not one of the items they made a pattern for...

EDIT 10/24/08 The following 'pattern' layout was provided via the article that [livejournal.com profile] jillwheezul was kind enough to share. The article also indicated that the cut and style of the garment was 1530, but that it was probably altered from an earlier garment (at least 1500).

Onward and upward....

This entry takes us into the later period and the images and descriptions of the outer and under doublets of Count Friedrich von Stubenberg. Count Friedrich died in 1574 and these are the clothing items he was buried in . The Abegg Foundation completed extensive reconstruction on these articles. For the sake of those who are most interested in images of the restored garments, I will include only those in this post. If anyone *really* wants to see what they looked like in their 'before' condition, just let me know and I will add those images as well.

As mentioned in my entry on men's knitted hats from this same book, this entry deals with a set of clothing from the Berne Historical Museum. The clothing was originally attributed to Andreas Wild von Wynigen, who fought in at least one battle in 1499 (Dornach). However, the clothing has since been reexamined and it has been determined that this is more likely a reproduction by other members of the von Wyningen family - specifically a grandson who was a tailor and who may have made the set as a 'historical costume' for himself.

There were so many photos to take of the Wams (doublet) and Hosen (pants) that I split it into two entries in an attempt to not overload the usefulness of the photos and to make future use of these sources easier.

This post is image HEAVY...consider yourself forewarned.

Onward, to the Wams! )

Back to the Hosen...

These hats are similar to those found in the excavation of the Mary Rose. They are knit, and are almost the same red color as those I remember from the MR book, "Before the Mast".

The first hat is a part of an overall set of clothing from the Berne Historical Museum. *see full clothing detail here: PANTSDOUBLET* The clothing was originally attributed to Andreas Wild von Wynigen, who fought in at least one battle in 1499 (Dornach). However, the clothing has since been reexamined and it has been determined that this is more likely a reproduction by other members of the von Wyningen family - specifically a grandson who was a tailor and who may have made the set as a 'historical costume' for himself.

So, if you make the same set of clothing, you at least will be copying a reenactor from the 16th C! *grin*

I really do need to learn how to knit... )

Awhile back I managed to ILL this book (I love my librarians!) - I took a whole lot of photos with the intention of posting them online for discussion and future reading. Then our laptop hard drive died. I lost a boatload of research and articles I have written over the years. But thankfully, all the photos I took of the Abbeg book were still on the digital camera!

So, now that I have learned my lesson and *will* be webbing my stuff from now on (*beating head against desk*) I am going to start putting up sections from the book for folks to consider and discuss.

I will be breaking this down into 'single subjects so that the number of pictures per entry don't get totally out of hand.
