Description

Patterns I Used: Mccalls 4491, and Mccalls 4490.
This was my Halloween Costume in 2009. It’s inspired by medieval/14th century costumes. The floor-length underdress is pale green with extra-long “scrunch” sleeves and a zipper in the back. The main dress hangs about 5 inches above the floor (which was a bad scissor accident that I made the best of by cutting the whole hem shorter); has 3/4 length sleeves with a bell shape toward the back of the arm, with facings cut in them; and also has facings cut in the bodice (which I embroidered flowers and vines around). The back of the dress closes with a leather cord lacing & embroidered grommets holes.

Material Notes

The main dress is made of medium green linen, and the sleeves are made of embroidered silk drapery fabric. The underdress is made of pale green poly-satin.

      For the underdress I used Mccalls 4491, and for the main dress I used Mccalls 4490. I really liked that 4490 had sleeve gussets for movement.
