A simple mens kyrtle for 1350

A dear friend still needed a very simple working-outfit for his wood workers impression. We still had this natural brown 2/1-twill ready which is quite robust.

I showed you some of the basics to making simple kyrtles for this time in this article here.  It is really just two rectangles for the front and the back and 4 triangle shaped side gores. The tight fitting neck opening is closed with 3 fabric buttons and the arms are closed with one fabric button.

Obviously, all seams are handsewn and hae a butterfly refinements.

For the hosen/trousers I still had a great piece of wool twill, plant dyed in reseda and iron-sulfate by Firiel in a gorgeous light green. Exactly the right amount, I only left some small scraps. For the reconstruction I used a whole bunch of different original pictures and findings from which I incorporated different attributes.
