The giornea was a tabard-like garment worn over the gamurra.
It pulled over the head and had open sides. The most common neckline was a deep V front, reaching almost to or sometimes past the waistline. It could be worn unbelted, belted around the waist or with the belt going across the front panel and under the back, giving a cape effect.
The cuffietta is the name we have given to that elusive piece of headwear called a "Juliet cap." It is suitable for wearing with early 16th century Italian garments.
Sizes S-XXL are included in every package for the giornea. The cuffietta is one size fits all.
The instruction manual includes historical notes, extensive fitting and sewing instructions, and design tips.
