WOW.... this is a great subject. I think it is one of the essential pieces to do when Creating Historically Accurate Garb.Ladies and Gents..... (((by the way.. WHERE Are our MEN Sewers these days? )))..... Post away!
I have some questions to people who make pre-1700 costumes. Now, I love Victorian dresses and Rococo fashion, don't misunderstand, but my questions are about research when there aren't too many preserved garbs and/or tailor patterns available. So anything of pre-1700 is of interest. Reason why I ask is partually that I'm curious about how other people do their research and what they emphasize, and partually because I want to write my Master degree in Art History about this subject. What can portraits tell us about fashion, how allegorical/stylizied are they, do they correspond with surviving gabrs etc. So it's interesting to hear other peoples thoughts on the matter. In advance, thanks a lot!

Hope this is the right place for this question..... Does anyone have info about renaissance clothing colors depicting certain counties? For example, black and red for Spanish, blue and gold for french, orange for German? I have found tons of info about regional styles, and I did read that red dresses were very popular.....any info greatly appreciated.
That said, try looking at the Elizabethan costuming page: drea Leed has some great links to colors from the periods. Remember that in Renn times, not all country boundaries were the same as they are now (the Italies, the Papal State, the Holy Roman Empire, etc) and mostly you;ll find specific colors associated with families rather than with nations... It's a different mind set.
