I'm 14th century Italian (+/- 1450 ) which makes me a wee early for the group but I know of none that cover my time frame. However the seeds were being sown for the Renaissance and this is what fascinates me.  Layers are the order of that day but in Caid summers I just roast. It was suggested to me to wear Greek Chiton. But it's so far from my time frame I'm uncomfortable the idea. Does anyone have any suggestions?Leonarda Castellani
