article on 16th century Irish clothing more than a few years ago. The outfit is really quite simple; the basis is the leine of golden yellow linen, the inar of red wool, and that is essentially all. A fringed woolen brat is also a requirement, but I made mine a good 4.5 years ago (and use it every day). No shoes, pants, or hat required.
|All the leine pieces, neatly stacked. Not yet trimmed to shape, though.|
