This one is for a LARP game set in the court of Elizabeth I. I didn’t want to go to the bother of a ‘pair of bodies’ and all the other Stiff Underpinnings, so it’s based on my Mock Kirtle pattern.
The fabric is a soft rayon/silk mix sari, and I cut to make best use of the pattern woven into it. Part of the edge design was trimmed off the skirt length and reapplied as trim to the skirt front opening and the bodice.
The front edge of the bodice is lightly boned to help the very soft fabric keep its shape.
The gown is made from a sari, using the headpiece for the sleeves and the edge design as trim. It is fully lined with Ulster Linen to give it ‘body’, and the sleeve ‘wings’ are interfaced.
