Re: [sig] Rus' coat closures
> I'm doing 13thC Rus, and making a coat (svita). A few questions;Purely decorative (with frogs & buttons), as they are a rudiment of knot buttons. There's a Polish SCA resource, I just fail to remember the url, with re-created Polish 16-17 century Zhupan with knot buttons. It can be re-googled (I found it at random while googling for knot buttons). They are of contrast color, yes. Kinda old Hungarian fashion.

The new, and growing, SCA Polish Costume site, has my Handbook, at
http://www.plcommonwealth.org . However, I don't have anything there on the
knots. The wealthier would use guilt buttons made out of precious &
semi-precious metals. See section two (Male & Female dress) in the files
The button directions can be found here
http://www.kismeta.com/diGrasse/patterns.htm , which is the Site of Rick
Orli's "Orlicki's Regiment' Polish re-enactment site.
I hope this helps!
