The headdress is inspired by an illumination Harley MS 4431, Christine de Pizan, The Book of the Queen' (French provenance, 1410 - 1414, British Library).
  The garment consists of underwear, pourpoint based on Charles de Bloisís extant piece, dark violet over-garment with large yellow sleeve (grande assiette type), woolen hoses and woolen hat with fur trimming.
