Green houpelande

 

  Ladies houppelande with "sack sleeve" made of green damask with flannel lining and chaperone. Under it are cotte simple and chemise. It looks delicate but it is very heavy. Dress is based on small sculpture from the Isabelle de Bourbon's tomb. It was my first dress done exactly according to medieval tailor's tractate. Ca 1415
