57118Early Houppelande Yardage?
- May 3, 2008My fiancée and I are making late 14th century
style houppelandes (the high-necked style as seen
in illustrations from the Romance of Alexander to
the Ellesmere Chaucer). Her's will likely be an
angel wing sleeve and long enough to pool on the
floor while mine will likely be a bag sleeve and
calf-length. Around what yardage of material am I
likely to need for these, based on modern 54"
wide upholstery fabrics?
"..Um..Something strange happened to me this morning."
"Was it a dream where you see yourself standing in sort
of Sun God robes on a pyramid with a thousand naked
women screaming and throwing little pickles at you?"
"Why am I the only person that has that dream?"
