Men's Short Cloak 1580-1600

Here is a pic of another cloak from the Tudor era.  This one a man's cloak with couching and embroidery.  Now couching I can do!  I'm hoping that the general rule applies that if they did it on men's clothing they also did it on women's.  I'm thinking the design form from the cloak in the last post would translate very well into couching as long as it's not too much of a stretch to do so.  I also found several cloaks that were lined/trimmed in fur which sounds like a lovely idea also.  I think I'll at least go with the fur lining.  Now whether it's in real fur or not is up to the budget.


  1. I've always wanted to make a cloak like that!

  2. I didn't even know women wore these short cloaks until Noelle brought it up as a possibility for my outer layer for the ACC. Ever since then I've been looking and wanting. I just don't know what differences there are, if any, for a woman's cloak as opposed to a man's. Any insight there?
