I joined a new game on DoA “Welcome to Camelot”. By the rules I had to create a personality and to sew one full medieval outfit represented this personality.
I chose the end of 13th century, so I had to sew a cotta, a surcoat and a cloak.
I also wove a macrame belt.
I saw on an old picture how peasants folded their skirts near a hem and pinned then. Thus they got something like pockets. I decided that my Iplehouse Jessica would have ones.

I sewed the surcoat by hand as well. The surcoat has white lining to prevent stains on the doll. I made eyelets also by hand and wove a cord using sewing thread.
I bought wonderful mushroom buttons in a bronze colour for the cotta but had forgotten that buttonholes to mushroom buttons need extra length :( I had to use bronze beads instead of those buttons. But anyway beads look wonderful and work great!
