Sorry it took so long. It’s taken me almost 3 years to recover from an unexpected illness. I have 3 more demos that need to go up: Seams, Hoods, and Surcotes. Watch this page for more info as they go live again.
“The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without the work.”
– Emile Zola
This site deals exclusively with 14th century English and French women’s clothing. The Luttrell Psalter (see Glimpses of Medieval Life on the British Library website) and the Greenland finds ( Woven Into the Earth) are the specific focus.
There are no new demos scheduled at this time but there a few older demos, still relevant, that need to be added. Please enjoy what is here, it is free for your personal use offline. If you would like to use any of the information on this site for teaching please contact The Medieval Tailor for permission. Please don’t use the information here for any other website without discussing and obtaining permission from the tailor in advance.
