1180
She's wearing a bliaut, a style that was popular in 12th and early 13th centuries, for both men and women. It was a tightly fitted tunic, with flaring sleeves. She alse wears a girdle, wrapped twice arond her waist. She wears her hair parted in the middle and braided into two braids. Fashionable braids were very long and could be extended with hair pieces. Married women would wear a veil over their braids.

1700 half bodice
A new pic! Two ladies wearing late 17th/early 18th century haristyles and some pretty unusual dresses, with decorative or even armor-like bodices worn outside. I've been intrigued by those gowns for quite some time now. I've been seeing them on numerous paintings (mainly by Nicolas Largilliere but not only), but I haven't found any description anywhere....

Here's some examples:

1670 Redingote
A formal riding habit for women appeared somewhere in latter half of 17th century. Up until then, women wore normal everyday dresses for riding. Outfit included a men's coat, masculine hat and even a periwig. The only difference was a full petticoat instead of breeches. While pretty conservative to today's eye, it was actually quite scandalous because of its similarities to men's clothing. 

Obviosuly, this kind of dress is suited for a lady-like side saddle. I don't know much about horse riding and so it's hard for me to imagine, how comfortable could it be, to ride astride wearing something like that. All post-medieval paintings I've found, that depict women riding astride, show them wearing breeches. Anyone know more about this? Are there any paintings with women riding astride while wearing skirts? They had to sometimes, but considering that there was no underwear, that'd have to chaf... did they wear breaches underneath skirts?

My friend, you are doing amazing work. As a mod for a quasi-historical RP group that really values authenticity, your research and visual examples are priceless reference. Seriously, I can't thank you enough. Keep up the great work!

I plan on doing some early 17th century for Italy. Later 1600s are very similar to western Europe though. Spain - yeah, probably, I need to get into mood :)

I would like you to draw those 17th century Spanish ladies in wide side hope skirts. Do you think that you can draw late 15th century Spanish ladies in those belle shaped skirts?

How do you pose your drawings? 
I love doing historical and fantasy fashion drawings, but always draw them in one of two basic poses. 
Do you have any suggestions for creating more interesting or unusual poses?
If you do it would be great!

(BTW the variety of periods you draw about is AMAZING)

well, I try looking at poses from paintings or stills from historical movies :) and sometimes I do it completely from my head, but it's not perfect, I could definitely work some more on the anatomy... Thanks for nice words!

Wow! Jak super, że ktoś rysuje postaci w strojach z różnych wieków! Zawsze miałam problem ze znalezieniem interesujących mnie strojów w Google.
A tu taka niespodzianka Love
