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 belt is decorated by glass beads in a same way as the period Castile belts.
