Roman Peplos

This oufit was made with 100% raw silk. I found a lovely piece of fabric and used a piece of it for the trim. I also have lovely brooches at my shoulders I purchased from http://craftycelts.com/. I loved the way it turned out.

Red Riding Hood

With extra red wool I had, I've made a 'Red Riding Hood' medieval style. It's completely lined in red linen, and hand stitched throughout. I used period stitching techniques, and also embroidered two wolves on the side gores. I made cloth buttons out of the red linen used for the lining, and I will be making buttonholes too. This hood pattern is based on the hood found in "Textiles and clothing, c.1150-c.1450
By Elisabeth Crowfoot, Frances Pritchard, Kay Staniland"
a book published by the Museum of London.
