Woman’s outfit 

  The outfit was made according to illuminations in Codex Balduini Trevirensis, 1320 – 1340. The outfit consists of the brocade sleeveless surcotte and the silk cotte, under which there are the shirt, drawers and stockings with garters. The surcotte and the cotte are made according to patterns of S. Thursfield (The medieval tailor’s assistant) with modifications. The cotte is made of silk shantung lined with white linen with buttons from wooden beads covered with silk. The surcotte is made of cotton brocade lined with cream satin. There is the paternoster from coral, filigree beads and silk tassels. The headdress is made of laying braids trimmed with brass pins with coral heads. The shaped part covering the neck is sewn by silk thread of silk pongé and is pinned to the braids.
