This blog is about one woman’s megalomaniac project of recreating the wardrobe of Catherine Jagellon, the princess of Poland and duchess of Finland. The research is based on two catalogs from the years 1562 and 1563 listing the duchess’s possessions and is carried out by sketches and creating actual pieces. The progress will be showcased in this blog every now and then.
I don’t claim to be an expert in any of the fields I’m meddling with here. I don’t even speak English as my first language, so you’ll have to forgive me for that too.. As a re-enactor (10+ years in the middle ages) I’m just very interested in the subject and try to do my best with the research and historical accuracy of the pieces.
