Giornea by PetStudent Giornea by PetStudent
And, finally, the giornea/overdress. I feel less bad for using "fake" fabrics here - there is no way I could afford any proper brocade.

Jaquard as outer fabric, and lined with something else equally non-natural. I realised that I needed to tie it together to make me look like something else than a cone. That blue is not the one I intend to use, though. It was just the only one I found.

I also haven't done anything about my hair, but hopefully there will be at least one good photo from Visby. Tree weeks to go.

Thank you. Your versions are much nicer, though! (and also not in cotton...)

thank you! But yours is a tad later and a slightly different style so it fills a gap in the timeline! :D You can see the 15th century starting to form! 1499-260771978

I have sent out a TON of requests so with any luck in a few days we'll have stacks of images!

I think I had Ghirlandaio's paintings in mind, so 1475-1480 somewhere. I think. And that is great. At some point I should get proper photos as well. And do a proper underdress for the late 14th century one.

Have you seen ~fengaren's stuff?

I put the 90s date from memory (based on the sleeves, I re-enact the year 1480 and we can't have these yet)so I went bak through my pictures and actually had a look jut to make sure.
The style of dress is very 75-80, but it is also very 80s and 90s too. The sleeves were going through changes through the 1475-1500 time moving from loose on the top, fitten on the bottom through to all fitted through to splitting the arm a little or splitting the elbow a little through to splitting both but having the upper arm spiral laced to the elbow. This sleve you first see on a VERY fashionable young miss of the early 80s in one of Ghirlandaio'ss paintings. Then around 86-90 they start to join the halves by lacing points in places then move to not joining them at all which continues through to the 16th century with the sleeves getting more and more cuttouts.
So how about I move this to 86?

That seems perfectly reasonable! I had no exact reference for this set of sleeves, so I can't give any more specifics than you just did. Thank you very much!

Gorgeous. And I actually really like the blue, it makes a nice combination with the red and the black/gold.

Thank you! And I am not really opposed to a contrasting blue, but the band itself is some horrid cotton thing.
