My Suit of Armour
I really like this tutorial. Sums up everything you need to say and provides excellent pictures.
The low edge of the skirt sports such dagges. Most of this decoration has been cut off. Strips of woven fake fur were stitched to the dagges.
Note the remnants of stitching along the edge of the painted area that probably served to fasten dagges.

The shoulders are not padded as they would have been protected by armour. The rough finish of the armhole hems and the missing colour supports the theory of a missing decoration as seen in period art.
