I started off this year with wanting to do a tour of the HRE. I started in Bavaria, because I had material that matched a portrait. And people have been after me to do something based on an actual painting. Now that we have that out of the way, I want to do more interesting clothing. I want to work on a couple of lower class, tross outfits. Not the Saxon dresses folks seem to keep wanting to pass off as tross. I am looking for the folks with the baskets and the daggers. I am trying to de-upper class, cause you can't work in the pretty stuff.

I've got several different images of working wear that I really like:

I am especially interested in whatever the white hood thing is. And I am fascinated by the short socks. I like how simple some of these clothes are. And I really love the full aprons. I have one that I made last year, and it is by far my most favorite. And it is in a pic that is not of a birthing scene.I was hoping for more sleveless options (rather than attached to the over dress). I am more likely to push up my sleeves while working.  The fitted sleeves make it difficult to do that.

The conundrum is the mix and match of styles. I can see the various regional groups. Would it really matter what the women were wearing? Or would they be more reflective of the region they were from.
