Hmm.. okay. My sample of the brigitta cap didn’t go that well. It was to small, and i couldn’t seem to tie it the right way. Thank god I didn’t you the expensive fabric!
Oh yeah! I also got my fabric. The wool is not what I imagine, but I can use it for a cape instead.
I will make this cap/bonnet as the piece I will pin the headscarf to.
There is an Danish article here
I just bought the fabric I will use for my Nun Project. I have decided to be a Novice – this means I’m going through the admission process to be a Nun. Thought it would fit better with my age. Most nuns went through a years long Novice training. So will be wearing a white Vail.
I can’t wait to show you guys the fabric!
Here is a raw pattern for the chemise i’m going to make. The fabric will be made from Nittle and bought at Historicum, a danish webshop.
The colour will be natural or off-white.
A little more about the nun Hildegard. Here is the trailer to the Film “Vision” which tells the story about her and her extraordinary life.
My main inspiration in this project are the pictures/illuminates/paintings of Hildegard of Bingen.
She is one of the most famous Nuns in the medieval. I have also selected which style I want to saw in. Im going to focus on the styles between the year 1200 and 1450.
Here are some pictures:
This is my first post. Usually are these post very doll and all “hallo let me introduce myself”. I’ll try to make this a little different. I will share my project with you.
I have participated as a volunteer on The European Medieval Festival for many years now. Here I have handed out flyers, helped the artists and been a Ticket Inspector. This year I want to try something else. So I decided to help the churches with their ceremonies. I’m going to be a Nun. Usually I can wear the same costume for most events. But this time I have to make a custom-made one. I don’t think my boyfriend is so excited as I am, hehe
