KdMsa - Kopfbedeckungen für Mann und Frau (German)

"Kleidung des Mittelalters selbst anfertigen – Kopfbedeckungen für Mann und Frau" (Make your own medieval clothing headwear for men and women)

Veil, cowl, hood, cap, hat, or beret? Those who wish to believably portray a medieval character will also require a suitable historical headdress. This carefully researched and faithfully illustrated book offers a varied collection of headdresses through the ages.

The authors offer examples to unveil the historical sources their interpretations are based on and provide tips on how to wear the individual pieces. The sewing instructions range from early medieval versions to variants based on depictions in the Maciejowski bible and the Codex Manesse to reconstructions of high-medival findings from London.

Easily understandable and comprehensible descriptions and illustrations will guide the reader through all steps of the workflow. This will allow even the unexperienced to create pattern layouts, to try out different sewing methods and to hem edges of cut. This reference guide is completed by a basic introtuction to the necessary work techniques and a brief overview over materials to choose the ideal fabrics and colours.
