Eleanor of Aquitaine by Diddune Eleanor of Aquitaine by Diddune
I stopped playing with dolls about ten years ago… and then I started crocheting for them.

This is only the second full costume I have made.

The fabric underneath is satin and the white yarn is cotton, though I have had it for so long I cannot remember the brand. I used a 1,00 mm crochet. The gold yarn is Phildar sunset gold. I used a 1,75 mm crochet for the sleeves and a 2,00 crochet for the veil.

I also made the necklace using gold brass.

Lastly, the slipper were a real pain to make, it is so small !

Last summer, when I was finishing the skirt and picking up the sleeves again, my grandmother asked: “Does she have a name?” I answered: “No, but I know she is a queen who’s dressed for her wedding day.”
So we exchanged ideas for a name, drawing from long France History. She suggested Marie-Antoinette, but both the time and her tragic fate did not appeal to me. Finally, I settled for Eleanor of Aquitaine because her dukedom played a big part in History.

I know this is not true to Eleanor’s time costume. I did not want it to be. This is what come from my imagination.
