Fernando's pelotte

This infant dress of the son of Alfons X of Castille (middle of the 13th century) is presently located in the monastery of Las Huelgas. We call it infant dress, because we think it was probably made for a child, and the proportions support that hypothesis. Unfortunately, we have not been able to find the proper measurements, so the scale on the picture is only approximate. This gown differs from other spanish pelottes in that this looks more like a cointise.
