9th Century Female Magyar Clothing of the Conquest

February 10, 2012

This outfit, for a 9th-10th century conquest era magyar female, was created in December 2011 by some really amazing artists based on the direction of my current research.  I’ll be speaking about each piece in future posts, but thought I would get a gallery up for people to look at.  Yay for eye candy!

    Hi I love your stuff, I was wondering were do you get your wool from?

    This is lovely! Well done!

    I’m looking forward to your commentary on the individual pieces, such as why you chose which shapes for each layer. I also hope you’ll post some pictures of the outfit being worn, since clothing looks and behaves differently on a person than on a hanger.

    Thank you for all your lovely research and for sharing it with us!

    Greeting I was wondering if you have a photo of you wearing your Magyar Clothing so I can see that the drape of the outfit should look like. Yours hopefully Rachel

    I was wondering where you got the book you used as a reference for your 9th century women’s attire–I can’t seem to find it on amazon. Thank you.

      There isn’t a book specific to clothing of this era. This is based on a decade of research and a healthy dose of speculation.

    Hi. An article came out today in Forbes Science about the “Hungarians” in 1000 who were great archers. I do SCA mounted archery, so have been thinking about going with a Eurasian type, early persona for riding clothes. Thank you for your work here!! This is a great place to start on my new garb.

    I am in the SCA and have been pondering a secondary persona of a pre-1000 Magyar. I don’t weave. Where could I get wool that would be appropriate for the outer layer, and what kind of silk is good for the middle layer?

    Greetings, I am in the SCA and am working on my Magyar personae. Do you have a source for your patterns that you could share? I would be grateful.

      Hi Leslie, I don’t use patterns, rather I use my measurements to create the fit of the garments.
