Sleeves, Ladies pin on, 15th C. Linen

Removable sleeves are worn pinned to the short sleeve of the gown. Made of linen, perfect for hot summer events and middling portrayals where brocade is too hot to wear or too high status. These sleeves are beautifully made and completely REVERSIBLE- it's like getting 2 pairs of sleeves for the price of one!

Although commonly seen in many images from the period, pin on sleeves are most famously seen in  

  • The portrait of Mary Magdalene by Rogier van der Weyden (rich polychrome cut velvet, 1450)

  • The Seven Sacraments (solid wool or linen, van der Weyden, 1445-50)
