Here is a little complete costume that I made for my little girl (7yo). It's based on historical patterns and iconography.
It's a 15th century merchant daughter from France.

The "Chainse" (undergarment) and the "cale" (head) are made of thick cotton , the dress is made of flax.
We added a little leather "aumnire" (purse) attached to a rope-belt, and a little "fibula" (brooch) of celt inspiration.
The boots a non-historical.

Pictures were taken during a Medieval fair in Crmieu (France).

I saw this last night and meant to comment on it then.
Wow, this is cute. She looks so authentic (minus the dirt and filth that made the 15th century wayyy too much fun!)
