1401-1450 Femmes de l aristocratie portant le hennin miniature du XVe

Periods were known as "flowers", "menstra", "termes", "women's sickness", and "courses".

The hennin can be worn in 2 different ways: At the top : with false cockscomb and liripipe. At the bottom : with veil.   This weekend at the Elf Fantasy Fair in Arcen I will try out both options.

from Boccace's "Decameron".  note the wimple under the hennin headdress (??), and the deep back-V neckline. Also interested to know which tale this is illustrating - a woman of this stature wearing a work apron and, what, giving alms?  Interesting. Also I like the floor. Hee.
