For a while on my blog 15th Century Spinning I did “Picture Friday” where I posted a new picture each friday. I thought for this blog I’d do “Picture Wednesday” with some of my inspiration images for my new 15th century wardrobe.
Fist up, is:
1491, MEMLING, Hans, Passion (Greverade) Altarpiece (detail), Museum für Kunst- und Kulturgedichte, Lübeck.
I really love this detail, there is so much to look at I love the cut of the pale green kirtle in the middle and her belt, the brocade kirtle to the right with the pin-on sleeves in red (red pin-on sleeves are in my future), a red open hood is also in my future (working on the practice one in blue right now) and how can one forget the frilly veils.
