Re: Silk Velvet

These guys have some: http://www.wmboothdraper.com/ Whether it's true 100% silk or a silk ground with rayon pile I don't know. I have a sample. It's very nice, the photo on the website is very representative of the colour. However, it is extremely light and floaty stuff with a short pile. I'm not re...

Re: 1360s/70s noble couple

Oh, and just to say - if anyone else has any ideas/hints/tips/advice/theories I'd love to hear them. The more interpretations on how to do things the better.

Have fun!

Re: 1360s/70s noble couple

Thanks again for all your advice. I think I've just got one more question for now: If you have the time it is worth making a full sized toile (test pattern) of the dress when you have the body block. That way you can add finishing touches and check on measurements and length. I added a picture of a ...

Re: 1360s/70s noble couple

Thank you for your detailed reply! I'll put the answers here in case they help others understand what I'm up to. However, I shall definitely PM you if I have any particular questions. Most important question: have you got someone who can help you with fitting a body block? (See MTA :-) ) Once you ha...

Something rather like the fancy clothing in http://roseandchess.lib.uchicago.edu/ (e.g. the woman in red and the man in white with particoloured hose being led by the ang...

Looking for Cambridge(shire) reenactment group

Hello, I am moving to Cambridge (tomorrow!) with my other half and, regrettably, this means we're semi-leaving our reenactment group. Does anyone have any Cambridge-based groups they'd recommend to us? (Cambridge preferably, rather than Cambridgeshire as we will be reliant on public transport and bi...
