Hello, I am new (again, I was a member of this group many years ago) to the group. My name is Emeludt Hänsler and I have an interest in late 15th Century Southern Germany.
Recently I started a research project that started out of me trying to find a German gown to make for Atlantia's Disney Character Garb Challenge (the goal is to make period accurate garb to reflect or as an interpretation of an animated Disney character.) I choose Snow White. Well, I had a squirrel moment, and I started researching the gown seen in Albrecht Dürer's Engraving, "Young Couple Threatened by Death."
Basically, did this dress really exist? After all, it is a combination of the Housebook and Landsknecht styles. Anyways, I have my research together, and I would greatly appreciate any and all feedback. After all, it is a theory - so feedback is a good thing. Thank you in advance.
