After about a FIVE year hiatus, my lord husband and I are returning to the SCA. We moved to Ansteorra from Atlantia about three years ago... before that we were in Gleann Abhan. I'm embarassed to admit that our old garb is a hodge-podge of mixed periods and styles! Also, I recently had weightloss surgery and all of my old stuff is now WAY too big.
While in Atlantia we lived near Colonial Williamsburg which totally inspired us to want to achieve our own best level of authenticity within our chosen time-period of the 14th Century. Specifically mid-early 14th Century ENGLAND! I want to pay special attention to the much over-looked accessories such as headwear and shoes.
Can anyone on this list please point my in the right direction for making true-to-period Cote Hardies (men and women's) as well as chauses and braese?
In humble service,
