      It wasn’t made from a pattern; I based it on a diagram in a Czech book about medieval clothing and, honestly, got it quite wrong, so the result you see is how I made my mistakes work.
      It’s more or less four rectangular pieces for the body (going down into the skirt), with neckline, narrowed from underarms to the waist, with godets sewn in the skirt and sleeves sewn to where sleeves go – not set-in sleeves, instead rather like kimono sleeves, but going only down to the elbow and there a semi-circle is sewn to it. It laces at the sides.
      I hope you get the idea from my confusing description…

      Oh, and the mistakes: It shouldn’t be so loose in the body. The skirt should be shorter than it is (which you cannot see in the picture, because I saved that by lacing it tight and UP) and also fuller – the godets should have been wider, but I was afraid that I didn’t have enough fabric (which turned out not to be true). Also, the neckline is too low and wide, so it tends to slip down my shoulders and I have to wear something underneath for decency.

    It’s funny, today we showed it to my mom’s old friend and she said exactly the same! :D
