Anna's alternative project 2 - rain coat
Some of you do already know this funky coat from Jost Amman: http://de.wikisource.org/wiki/Bild:Frauen-Trachtenbuch_059.jpg Recently I've found more about it: http://flickr.com/photos/avsfoto/tags/mecklenburg/ (the first three). It shows, that this kind of coat was worn at good weather too. I have no idea how to do it, but it looks nice. Maybe a 3/4-mantle with a kind of stiffened hood. Will have to check that.
