“The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without the work.”

– Emile Zola

NEW PAGES! Well they’re not new, they are from the old site and were lost in the move. The lost files have been found and added to the site. Enjoy the demos on Surcotes, Seams and Hems, and a lady’s Buttoned Hood. Remember, these are from an old site. Much has changed since they were created including the sale of all the garments so no new photos are possible. Happy Stitching!

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. 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, either written or photographic, for any other website without discussing and obtaining permission from the tailor in advance.

This site is not affiliated with the Medieval Tailor’s Assistant, another great resource. The information on this site is free and not published anywhere else.
