I'll have to respond to the fit thing later, but I have to laugh about the hoods. Several years ago, I made a hood, then I decided to enter it into an SCA competition. So I started writing the docs, and couldn't for the life of me find any women wearing that kind of a hood. I eventually dug up a couple, but even for the 14th century, they're pretty rare.
Yeah, they look pretty, but I've never been able to really wear a hood much since then, except occasionally for very cold events. And for 15th century? I can proudly say that I've never worn one for that time period - I've never seen it anywhere except on reenactors.
And hi! I was going to respond to your comment in my journal, but I might as well here. I'm in the SCA, but I also play with Lord Grey's Retinue for 15th century, and La Belle Compagnie for late 14th century (I'm also ramping up a diatribe about grouping the 1340s in with the 1390s, but that's for after my meeting...). A while back, somebody from CoSG emailed me about my 15th century sleeve article - was that you?
