2133Re: loose gown/coat thingy
- Oct 2, 2004Perhaps then this will help:
At the end of your original post, you asked for ideas on constructing
something similar [to a coat or a loose gown worn over the Florentine
or Venetian gown.] The Turkish coat having been worn in Venice, and
being similar in shape (pretty much an A-line) to the loose gown, it
didn't seem too much a stretch to me to begin with Mistress Oonagh's
instructions for her Turkish coat and work that garment's design
around to a loose gown.
I apologize for having interpreted 'something similar' so broadly.
But at her site, for which I've given a link, above, Kass McGann has
the pattern envelope illustrations for her historical clothing
patterns; one of them---I think it's the third from the top as you
scroll down---shows the *back* of a loose gown.
These, however, are English, I'm pretty sure.
Will they be close enough for your purposes? :)
