from a company based in Norfolk, Quartermasterie . they do have amazing silks, though mostly with patterns from tudor onwards. now and then, however, they have earlier stuff - and i was lucky to get some of the medieval brocades for the kit pictured above!

Yay! I have been wanting to try making this style for a while, and I'm sure your article will be useful.

I have terrible fabric envy now, though.

Is my material o.k.?
Hallo Izabela,
sinceI I want to found an assosiation for historic costume making, so that Hobby can earn his own Money, I plan a double for my knight in Training. Because he is a poor aristocrate, the hose and double will be of linen. For the coat I saw at ebay a linen jaquard, I like the design, maybe I dye it blue or red, I hope the link works : http://www.ebay.de/itm/261303076093?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649
Ist the first time that I found this Kind of design in Linnen, did they have it in the 15th C. ?

to be honest, the design looks a bit later, but may just pass. for that status a coat in wool will work even better - understated elegance etc, plus it will be serving a useful function - it will be suitable for colder weather, and it wont crease as much as linen fabrics tend to. use the linen for a nice doublet and then wool for the coat? hose in linen - strongly suggest wool, have much more stretch in them so you wont be repairing them after every outing,

good luck with your project!
