Finally, some pictures from Ottmarsheim, and my new (well 3 months is still rather new) blue dress. Pictures by Marina
And I know, it's very late in style, but I like it never the less.
Made of dark blue wool, laced with red silk laces (6 loops), the headress is my usual Schongauer quick (3 pins no mirror) headcloth.
The base idea developed by me seeing too many pictures and and having an idea of what I would like and that it should be rather "regional" for the Upper-Rhine Region (I know, there is this whole crave for Upper-Rhine-Stuff, but I happen to live here..)
Among those "sources" is a tapistery at the Historical Museum of Basel, combined with some Schongauer & Housbook pictures and engravings, as seen at the Basler Kupferstichkabinett, the Musée d'Unterlinden in Alsace, as well as the Babenberger Stammbaum (Familytree).
It's too much 80ties/90ties, and too regional and too upper class to wear at The Company (Alas)
Because I am too lazy to photograph the pictures in my books, I just post links to myralea's fabulous gallery:
That's one of the inspirations for the neckline:
One for the back-pleating of the skirt (altough there are many more)
Hans Part (Babenberger Stammbaum, kept at the the Monastry Klosterneuburg
I just love the colours, and I am very thankful that myralea collected all those pictures:
