Morgan Le Fey

Mor­gan Le Fey

Cre­ated for a themed event, this is an late 14th / early 15th cen­tury his­tor­i­cal take on Mor­gan Le Fey. Through­out the 14th cen­tury, leg­ends of King Arthur devel­oped in pop­u­lar­ity. Though the story of Arthur took place much ear­lier, I wanted to cap­ture Mor­gan Le Fey through the style of this period.
This gown, known as cote­hardie, kir­tle, cotte, cote, or gothic fit­ted gown, is based on early 15th cen­tury Euro­pean sources. The dress is made of linen. The but­tons are all hand­made. The bot­tom hem fea­tures a con­trast­ing fab­ric that matches the pin-on sleeves, all done with coun­ter­change but­tons. The acces­sories include dried herbs and oils and tinc­tures I cre­ated, all based on period alchemy and arranged on my per­son with a fun mag­i­cal touch.
