Clothing- A 15th Century Burgundian Wardrobe

One of the great things about changing reenactment groups last year is the fact I am not restricted to 1480 Italian clothing. As much as I love that period, before I joined my old group I was interested in the clothing from other parts of Europe including Flanders and Burgundy. I’d done a LOT of research, but not much making and even less wearing. I have dresses I’ve never worn or have no reason to finish. That said, these dresses are all over ten years old so it is time for new dresses.

Over the next few months I’ll be making lots of beautiful dresses I’ve been waiting ten years to make I’ll be posting my research and progress on this blog and publishing the finished results in the wardrobe links below.
