..and this time it’s serious!
Last fall I started writing my master’s thesis using these two documents as a source. The aim is to recreate an outfit from Catherine’s wardrobe using the techniques and knowledge of 16th century textiles and sewing acquired from portraits and extant artifacts along with other sources. As a by-product we’re getting new and exciting info that has never been published as a whole. So if you’re into some serious 16th century textile business, stay tuned!
