I like! Reminds me of people in the battle scene in the Utrecht Psalter, oddly enough...

Btw, any chance of a pic of a stola? I am still wondering about how to keep it pleated so I don't have to mess with it at Pennsic. Thanks!

Also, do you need more info on Norman clothing from me, or was the bits I wrote you about earlier sufficient? I can help with looking for stuff online, but as far as construction, everything is theoretical. Rectangles, gores, and gussets are your friend. Side or back lacing appear to be the primary methods of closure for gowns. Three layers usually - under chemise, dress, and overdress (or other names, but that's essentially it). You'll find mentions of Pelisse or Pelicon, a sort of coat, too. Not necessary, but in the winter it would have been fur-lined. In the summer, it's possible that a lady might have one made of some see-through-ish silk. Again, not necessary and probably more hassle than A will want to deal with in court... too much to do, and too easy to snag. I'll see if I can find the Fecamp Psalter for you though, since that's sort of a helpful site, if a bit later than perhaps you're looking for...
