alot on this list be reading the answer to other peoples questions
Ive been playing around with alot of the different weaving
techniques...I was already familiar with lucet braiding, I use it to
make cords to lace up bodices...and who woulda thought that the card
weaving I learned all those years ago in girl scouts to make
friendship bracelets was a period practice?!?
So Ive learned all kind of things!
But...the origional question was about recreating the wide trims on
14th century cotehardie (fitted gown). All the art Ive looked at,
doesnt show the trim in enough detail to really make out how it was
made. Does anyone here know? Was it a different color of cloth? Was
it a form of weaving a different color directly into the fabric of
the gown? Is it built up of several different layers and forms? Does
anyone have any links that show it in better detail? Any books I
could find to document it?
