Hi all!

Archaeologia historica has put some of it's volumes online in PDF format, so here are the clothing-related ones I could find:

Archaeologia historica 36(2) 20011
http://www.phil.muni.cz/waoa/home/Documents/ah/AH2011_2.pdf

Milena Bravermanová: "Fragment of a Funeral Dress and a Kruseler Veil from the Casket of Czech Queens in the Royal Tomb, St. Vitus Cathedral" / "Fragment pohřebních šatů a závoj, tzv. kruseler, z rakve českých královen z královské hrobky v katedrále sv. Víta"
pages 281-312, discusses a kruseler veil, another scarf, and a sleeveless surcote-looking garment that was believed to have had a separate, gathered skirt!

http://www.phil.muni.cz/waoa/home/Documents/ah/AH2010.pdf
Milena Bravermanová: "Funeral Attire of a Czech Queen from the Royal Tomb in St. Vitus Cathedral" / "Pohřební šaty jedné z českých královen z královské hrobky v katedrále sv. Víta"
pages 202-222, discusses a possible sleeveless surcote (it's unclear if there were originally sleeves or not), and a pillow.

Also of interest in volume 35...

Zdeněk Měřínský-Rudolf Procházka: "Some Aspects of Everyday and Festive Life of the Mediaeval Man in Moravia and Silesia" /"K některým aspektům každodenního a svátečního života středověkého člověka na Moravě a ve Slezsku"
pages 7-44

Tomáš Durdík: "Some Notes on Everyday Life in Czech Castles" / "Několik poznámek k české hradní každodennosti"
pages 45-62 -- puzzle jugs, what looks like a nutcracker, gaming pieces and other interesting things

Markéta Tymonová: "Archaeological Evidence of the Everyday Life of the Inhabitants of Cvilín Castle in the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Age" / "Archeologické doklady každodenního života obyvatel hradu Cvilína v období středověku a raného novověku"
pages 63-79

Zdeňka Měchurová: "The World of Mediaeval Children and Games in Archaeological Sources" / "Středověký svět dětí a her v archeologických pramenech"
pages 95- 107: plenty of whirligigs rattles and ceramics.

pages 310-332 - covers Fechbücher, sculpture, frescoes, manuscript images, and looks really interesting!

František Gabriel-Lucie Kracíková: "On the Function of Small Ceramic Sculptures"/"K funkci drobné keramické plastiky" pp. 225-232
Lots of images of ceramic 'dolls' or figurines, naturally enough wearing interesting clothes.

Čeněk Pavlík: "Dragons on Gothic and Renaissance Tiles, or the Magic World of the Imagination" / "Draci na kachlích gotiky a renesance aneb kouzelný svět fantazie" pages 273-301
