Castile Lady


 The clothing is inspired by the manuscript Libro de los Juegos (made for King Alfonso in 1283) and by the artifacts preserved in Museo de las Telas Medievales de Burgos. The garment consists of a striped pellote, a red saya encordada, a camisa margomanda (embroidered smock), typical castilian headdress (capiello castellano), the belt and embroidered purse. The red saya encordada is sewn according to the extant piece belonging to the Eleanor de Castila, Queen of Aragon (+1244).

 Next pages represent the smock and details of the belt and purse.
