I just want to put up a few pictures of Ursel's elevation clothes here, partly because I can't get them to load into the files at the 12th c Garb Yahoo Group...
Over her linen chemise was a gown of palest green silk (think light celery green), with long tight sleeves that ruched up. Over that was a gown of green brocade, cut in the manner of the Germans (basically like the clothes in teh pictures in the Gospels of Henry the Lion of Saxony. The yoke and a band around the hem were done in a lovely peacock blue silk, which also lined the maunche sleeves. Laurel leaves were appliqued around the yoke.
On to the pictures!
The yoke, with narrow trim and appliqued leaves.
Not so great picture of the hanging gown- the color is sort of off there- should be much warmer.
And several shots of Ursel, during and after the ceremony-
I haven't been able to find a full-length shot of her- if I get one, I'll post it.
