-1540s Netherlands

Status: Wearable

Year finished: 2003

To Do:  Remake entirely! I liked this style, I have better constructions skills now

Updates since last photo: none.

Inspiration: depictions of a cardplayer that appears in a few paintings by Lucas van Leyden.

The cap is not entirely accurate. But it was a fun way to think about shapes and using heat and water to form.

I had a terrific amount of luck in my early SCA years in being able to find so many lovely coloured blankets and very large curtains. It allowed me to quickly create while learning to use appropriate patterning techniques.
