Description

I used a pattern that I drafted based on a 1300s gown excavated in Greenland. The gores and sleeves are constructed more complexly than the regular t-tunic type.

I made it in October, but my sister borrowed it for a Kiki’s Delivery Service costume, and I just barely got it back.

    Really cool outfit. Medieval and Renaissance Festivals are getting so popular. I looked up that web site where u got the patterns (u had shared it with Burdastyle once before) and I am amazed how u turned those patterns into outfit. Great job.

      You should try the patterns from the danish/swedish/norwegian “historicum”… www.historicum.dk… the patterns are really great! (the text is swedish or norwegian, i don’t know the difference…)
