Description

A LARP ‘pirate’ style gown, open up the front, with laced bodice.

It has a VERY FULL lace trimmed chemise under-dress that can be worn alone with a waist cincher.

Material Notes

The gown is very solidly sewn together, with taped seams and stitched eyelets. The lace at neck and sleeves on the under gown is a vintage lace.

The gown fabric is a polycotton drill, lined with mecerized cotton poplin. The undergown is a soft self-stripe woven in a light weight natural loomstate cotton sateen.

      Thank you!

      (Giggle… I HOPE it’s well made! I’ve been playing this sewing game for 50 years, and the last 16 of them as a professional! Still love having lots of new stuff to learn, though… :D )

    Thank you. It was actually quite a fast project: probably a total of 15-20 hours of pattern making, cutting, and sewing.
