I am Marion McNealy, an Independent Scholar researching clothing and daily life during the period 1480-1600 in what is now Southern Germany, parts of Switzerland and Austria. My goal is to provide a useful resource for people trying to re-create the clothing and understand the historical events from a balanced perspective. I have been researching and creating clothes, accessories and food in this time period since 2003. I’ve learned a great deal during this time, and continue to learn new things and pursue new areas of research.
I have a BS in Business Information Systems from the University of Washington and a Masters in Library & Information Science from Drexel University.

Hi Marion. I have a question about the hems of the Trossfrau gown. Would they have ever turned the hem to the outside of the gown and put a guard over it to protect the hem? Making a gown and thought it made perfect sense to me.
Thank you for any help you can give me on this.
