I made myself a pair of drawers. Though I doubt this color is terribly period for late 1400 Florence, it's hard to argue with how well black can hide stains.
Construction is quite rectangular. Two rectangles make up each leg, and they join at the top to cover my hips. It's partially pleated and topped with a drawstring waistband, pulled in with a ribbon from my stash. On the bottom are two slips that I embroidered this past winter and spring.
