After looking at many sites on how to make hose I had settled on Bernadette Banner site for my pattern. After trying on the hose with the little bit of a seams under my foot. I decided to look for something that had no seams under the foot. I found this picture of Archbishop of Bayonne hose from the late 14th century which had no seams under the foot and modified my pattern accordingly. The Archbishop’s pair had a leather sole, they could have been worn without shoes, however, my hose do not, as I plan to wear them with a pair of period slippers. They are made of cotton, since I am allergic to linen. The embroidery pattern came from an extant piece, a camica, in Museo del Tessuto, Prato. I like all my pieces for an outfit to have a matching item and this pattern was simple enough to embroider on most of the pieces.
This is the video I decided to follow at first and change plans after my first mock up.
