Mittelalterkleid nach einem Gemälde von John William Waterhouse von 1909. Frontansicht mit Stickerei.

Medieval dress

after John William Waterhouse

Period: 14th century / 1909

This 14th-century-style dress after a painting by John William Waterhouse (3rd version Ophelia from 1909) was made from heavy blue silk taffeta. The embroidery at the neckline has been copied from the painting and was partially reconstructed. The hem is trimmed with broad metallized cotton fabric, which was embroidered with medieval lions – also after historical templates – and other appropriate ornaments using metal yarn.
