Welcome to Rosalie's

About the website
This website is designed as a springboard for those who wish to learn a little more about the medieval woman: what she wears and why, how to be beautiful according to medieval standards, her personal hygiene and a little about a MEDIEVAL WOMAN'S LIFE- celebrations and the customs associated with key events in her life- births, deaths, marriages, employment, education, pets and how she spent her days at home and on holidays. I also do
TALKS and presentations at events.

More than anything, it's about the CLOTHES, which is the largest section of the website! My main love is 14th century England, but there are other places and times included as well.

If you want to know more about medieval clothing, visit the CLOTHES & DRESS ACCESSORIES pages, of which there are many! For material, fur or colour names visit the FABRICS page or to find out exactly what that garment is called, try the MEDIEVAL GLOSSARY. Many of the pages have sub-directories, so make sure you have a good look around! The SITEMAP will show you the entire website directory and the LINKS page has a good list of excellent online resources. If you'd like to know where you might see me in the real world, check the NOTICEBOARD page for upcoming events I am attending. And if you're curious, a little about ABOUT ME and my re-enactment life! There are some pictures of MY SEWING if you are interested in the things that I make. If you're a stallholder looking for help, please visit the MEDIEVAL STALLHOLDER HELP pages here.

I also have my very own medieval ARTIFACT COLLECTION here.

You can also like me on facebook for a bit of a short update on projects and some sewing and craft galleries. And if you have questions, you can always EMAIL ME.
