ANNOUNCEMENTS

I have finally updated some of the files I uploaded. I have added most of the missing pictures.

I am going to work on two new sections: 14th-16th century supportive gowns and a general projects page. Keep checking as I update!

I originally created this page to document my journey in creating a 16th century German Cranach style gown for the SCA.

This project has been fermenting in my brain for over two years and I have done a lot of research to support the choices I am going to make. However, it is still experimental archeology.

I have been dabbling in German garb for a while, focusing on s Dorothea Kannengeisser's portrait. Dissecting and recreating the Wulstehaub, was a challenge. I am thrilled with the final result and will post the documentation shortly.

I will also start posting some past projects and documentation, since I am woefully website illiterate. At least this way they will be available.

It is finally time to undertake this project. Thanks for accompanying me!

UPDATE: IT'S DONE!!!!

Please use the navigations on the side to see my journey. :)


Since I have made the dress, I have lost more weight and it is starting to get a little big. BUT, I am so thrilled with the final product.
