I want to work my way around the Holy Roman Empire via costume. I will be starting with Códice de Trajes,Hacia 1547
http://bdh.bne.es/bnesearch/biblioteca/C%C3%B3dice%20de%20trajes%20%20%20/qls/3302017 Click “view digital object” to see the book. I want to make the various regional dresses and create a book of me in the costumes of each area Eventually I will bind the book and it will become my personal codex.
The first area we will be visiting will be Freisa. I have the dress designed. If the pink linen and black wool arrive in time this dress will be made for our Yule celebration, this coming weekend. I have 2 full days off and nothing on the schedule that needs doing “RIGHT NOW”.
I will be posting in progress pictures as I go along.
And I’ve been busy designing other gowns for other folks and regions of HRE. So expect to see a lot of costuming posts in the next day or so. And just to keep things interesting, I will be posting some sugar write ups as I get ready to do winter subtlety projects.
