LOOKING FOR A SIMPLE LATE 14THEARLY 15TH CENT, DRESS PATTERN

Postby Fairfax » Wed Mar 03, 2010 12:12 pm

I'm absolutely rubbish at sewing but have a nice large piece of red wool that I'd like to make a dress from, I have a couple of The Duke's dresses and would like to follow the same simple pattern, does anyone know or have a pattern for a size 8 dress pattern, is there one by something like Simplicity or another make that I can order from somewhere. It will need to be very basic and easy to follow, can't be doing with tucks, facings etc.

Sally Pointer's free pattern and instruction from her website. http://www.sallypointer.com/. Personal use only, good pattern as it was well researched, simple to make and very well explained, photo of it in wear. Will suit your period requirements ideally.

Just promise that you won't do the gores in a different colour to the rest of the kirtle, please!


Is it 'coz I is middewl clarse, aih?
