- Old French bliaut, from Frankish *blidat (Wiktionary)
“I wanted to wait until I was done with the bliaut to post pictures of it, so there are now some photos of us at the fair on Flickr.”
“Despite some rough edges literally that resulted from making the costume so fast, I'm really happy with the bliaut.”
“The geekier details about how I made the bliaut are here.”
“I wish I'd had more time to trim the bliaut and make a veil.”
“After some successes making the underdress and a practice version of the bodice, I went to 39th Street today to scope out fabrics for my bliaut.”
““Papa, is it dark outside?” she asked as he slipped the bliaut over her head.”
“Her rich and lustrous dark hair was plaited into two long braids over her shoulders, intertwined with cords of gold thread, and lay upon the breast of her purple bliaut stirring and quivering to her long, relaxed breathing as though it had a life of its own.”
“Her gown was deep blue like her eyes, and like her eyes a little faded, and the bliaut she wore over it, sleeveless and cut down to either hip, was the same blue, embroidered in rose and silver at the hems.”
“The hands that lay at rest on the pillows were frail as cobweb, and the body within her dark gown and brocaded bliaut little but skin and bone.”
“She wore a pale yellow ankle-length chainse with a rich gold-colored knee-length bliaut over it.”

This is just sort of my "unsorted pit" of costumes to be organized later. It's a really broad topic, so right now, anything goes! Thanks for the contributions!
Oddments culled from my "main" lists that belong in a display cabinet of their own, plus sundry other curiosities. :-)
Do as your mom says and put on a jacket.
