Sideless Surcote by DaisyViktoria Sideless Surcote by DaisyViktoria
My first sideless surcote! I'm not sure why I never got around to this before, so one day I rummaged through my spare fabric and pulled this together. This style is based on late 14th century French sources, though sideless surcotes came in many variations and neighboring regions.
I am wearing it with a brocade/jacquard kirtle and a horned veil headdress, which I also made.

Just beautiful. This looks to be close to the turn of the century what with the henin style of the veil.

Thanks! Indeed! Lately, I've been really into turn of the century fashion. (:

And I'm working my way backwards in time from 1376 to 1250 or thereabouts. LOL! I work (volunteer actually) in 1376. I dream, and mostly draw in the mid/late 13th Century. I really respect people who understand the importance of seriously researching before a piece is created.

That's so cool! I really appreciate historical research too. Sometimes I lose track of time digging into historical clothing evidence. It's so much fun! And then of course I want to make all of it! (:

Oh, I have artworks in my head that I could never do without much more mastery of my art skills. It is one thing to draw; it is entirely different thing to paint. for at least two of my pieces, I can't imagine them in any other media than traditional oils on canvas.

I'll lose myself for hours creating studies for just one element.

Research, and study? AWESOME!!! So much to see, and dream, so little time to play in another century.
