is set (barely) within the Ottoman Empire. For me, I do stuff all over
Europe and throughout the SCA time period, depending on my mood and what
friends need. I rely heavily on archeology reports and extant garments.

I will eventually get all the collection online, but it will be awhile.

My September-February persona is 16th century and English and for dressing Katherine I tend to use a combination of _Patterns of Fashion_ by Janet Arnold and _The Well-Dressed Peasant_ by Drea Leed. March-August I still do 16th century, but my persona is Indian. For dressing Asma I tend to rely on a combination of books on Deccani Art and _Saris:An Illustrated Guide to the Art of Indian Draping_ by Chantal Boulanger. The latter isn't really "historical" per se, but has excellent instructions for draping a large number of different saris and is invaluble when reconstructing historical styles.
