Description

This is perhaps the simplest, cheapest and most useful costume piece I have EVER made. 3 meters of 100 % linen in a natural off-white color have been turned into a simple t-tunic, perfect as an undergarment for both viking and medieval dresses.

It’s based on rectangular sewing, and I have used this diagram as a reference:

Only difference is, I used my bust measurement instead of my waist measurement and omitted a closure.

    The dress is beautiful! Thanks for sharing it and the pattern source. Just recently purchased many yards of linen and am looking forward to making this for myself. Wear yours in good health—it looks fantastic on you!
