I have an obsession with sheer sleeves lately.
Thanks! Here are two very good sources for medieval costume.
The first is a great blog that features a lot of movie costumes from that era and the second is an excellent costume site that has pictures, links to other resources and even instructions on how to create your own costume! Sadly fabric only lasts so long so there are not many extant examples out there so we have to rely on illustrations of the era and other costumers interpretations of them. I hope this helps!
p.s. I prefer to be called a “fashionisto”..haha.

I haven’t yet. The book that I am thinking they are in is in the costume shop at school. I will post them soon. I have looked online and there are very few pictures. Does anyone else know where to find photos of Coco Chanel’s hats she designed when she was a milliner?
I am not sure what photo you are speaking of.
Thanks! I am currently at Florida State..about to start my last semester!!!
