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. Cotton camisa is richly embroidered by a red and blue long legged cross stitch. The motives were taken from period textiles. The smock is laced up on the right side same as period pieces.

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