> What patterns would you use to make the hobbit clothes?
Hmmmm, well a skirt is pretty darn simple, I plan on making
just a plain (2 panels for me!) gathered skirt using a hook
and eye. Do you need a pattern for that? Just one or two
(depending on your size) panels the whole width of the
fabric, cut to length and add a waist band.
One friend was wondering if Folkwear's Greek Vest was
similar to the hobbit bodices? I don't have the pattern, so
I have no clue. It certainly isn't the Bolivian Milkmaid
For men, the pants looked like a colonial pant with a
longer leg that wasn't gathered into a knee band. At least
that way gives you the broad-fall front. I don't recall
seeing what the back of the hobbit pants looked like, if
they had the lacing that colonials have or not.
