Bonnie the dog


MariaMagdalena painting of Weyden inspired me to make this dress. I dyed the wool an was lucky enought to get a colour and surface close to the original.
The funny hat got its name after the paper rolls you have in a public toilet. It contens a thick 5.5m long linenribbon, fluffed up, in the edges, and with a pure silkorganza veil under. It is quite comfortable.
The sleeves was hard to make so I gave up and found this beautiful cloth. The belt are made of a dogchain and the chain you got in the bathroom. I sandcasted the two tinbulchs.

This Flemmish ensemble is inspired of several different paintings of the same motive, a cook, and a market painting where a woman in the background are carrying a large plate on her head.

I made the red dress in linnen, and my overdress is in dark green and open in front. The upright collar and the hat is strifftened with ritch ricewater.

The kamfrau dress is inpired from the german drawing here, and the hat is from a lot of others period illustrations. 

The slashes are sewn back into place with linnentread och i have natural color linnencloth inside the slashes only sewn a few spots to stay in place, and easy to take off when the dess some day have to be washed.

Boxpleats both in front and back. 

To complete the landsknecht-look i knitted a pair of overknee stockings, one plain gray and the other in two colors. See the swedish instructions here

The shoes is from Bohemond shoes. Well sewn but very uncomfortable when new.
