Swabian dress #4: design iterations

08 Nov

Normally, I don’t post all of the design process. But I figure that folks can learn from my iterations along with me. I’ve been trying to lean more towards “real” and less “what works”. In this iteration, you can see that the letter shape of the Y changed to something a little more calligraphy, less typography. Both the previous Y and this Y are in the pre- 1600 time period. But this new version begins to look more like a decorative cap, rather than a composition of things. The person who will be wearing this is running for baronial seat. But win or lose, the dress will be made and worn for Baronial Investiture. It is important to see if the design will hold up with all the elements, even if one element is missing. So I am adding a side by side view of what it will look like with a baronial coronet.  This covers both outcomes.
