I started this blog to organize my information on German Renaissance history more comprehensively so as to provide myself with a better persona. If you'd like to keep track of this blog, the RSS file is http://scagermanrenaissance.blogspot.com/atom.xml Since starting this blog, my research has actually centered on pre-German Renaissance, but only barely. I'm researching roughly 1470s women's clothing and Landsknehct for my husband.
While browsing through all the nice Extant Originals that I found on http://www.kostym.cz/Anglicky/obsah.htm I found a pattern adaptation that I'm going to at least include here hoping it will help things make sense. Here is a hose pattern from 14th - 15th century Germany.
