A few scans from one of my many historical costume books. More to come, so keep your eyes peeled!

A useful overview on what we know about late 15th century Ottoman women's clothes.

PostSubject: Ottoman References   15th century Turkish Women's Clothing Minicl10Sat Apr 02, 2011 1:24 pm

Here are a great deal of new images from various sources. I have grouped them into artists, starting with Ottoman miniaturists, and then European painters, to give a better understanding of the clothing and styles. Enjoy.

Ottoman Miniaturists

15th century Turkish Women's Clothing Levni-sheerveil

This lady wears a sheer veil over a dark, patterned jacket, which itself sits over a red patterned jacket and another sheer dress. A pair of loose pants are worn underneath the ensemble. Note the very cute little white boots.

15th century Turkish Women's Clothing Levni-orange

Fewer layers this time, an orange jacket over trousers and a sheer skirt.

15th century Turkish Women's Clothing Levni-rose-mauve

Similar to the first image. It would seem that the long jacket is an outdoor coat, and the layers beneath can be worn seperately in a state of 'deshabille' when relaxing at home.

15th century Turkish Women's Clothing Levni-musicians

Many colours and fabrics on these female musicians. I love the square necklines in these, very flattering!

15th century Turkish Women's Clothing Buhari-winter

A beautiful winter ensemble. The fur on the overcoat appears to be sable, and she wears a brown dress over a striped dress over loose red pants. Love it!

15th century Turkish Women's Clothing Bulhari-seated

Similar to above.

15th century Turkish Women's Clothing 1793-Istanbul_Lady

This very fitted dress is cut under the bust, paired with only a (very) sheer chemise on top! Judging by other images I've found, this was a popular look. Also see below image.

15th century Turkish Women's Clothing Cuc0943168a

These are existing costumes from the late Ottoman period, so somewhat out of our era, but they still have some touches that we have seen in the above illustrations: fur trim, balloon pants, etc. And the level of detail and embroidery...

A few more adorable miniatures.

15th century Turkish Women's Clothing 03-ace10

Pretty much the same as everything we've seen, but I just love the look of those fabrics...

15th century Turkish Women's Clothing B91710

Much the same again. Less transparent material on the skirt and veil this time, and with coloured embroidery.

15th century Turkish Women's Clothing Levni_11

This is soo cute. I love the pink robe - and I don't even like pink! Notice how the inside hem is edged with red, and her henna-ed toes peep out of gathered purple trousers.

Now onto a few Victorian orientalist paintings:

15th century Turkish Women's Clothing 021rt_10

I love the materials in this dress. Lots of thin, textured layers in the same colour. The edges of the fabric on the outer layer are scalloped.

15th century Turkish Women's Clothing 022rt_10

This fair lady wears very pale make-up (the ideal was to have chalk-white skin and black hair - so Evren and Ezel have done well) but I think the artist has gone a tad too far with this interpretation. The costume looks to be a dress fitted under the bust, with a translucent chemise (barely) covering her chest. Her outer dress is lined with ermine fur. I love the stripy chartreuse silk in this one.

15th century Turkish Women's Clothing 385px-10

Here's a good idea of those translucent chemises that Victorian artists found so titillating...ha. ha. I like this one because of the pretty embroidery.
