I think redoing the yoke would still make it useable for SCA but then I am not an experienced SCAer but I think it could still be creatively done to make it usable. I understand putting in so much work and fabric is so expensive these days nothing should ever be wasted. I am currently making a costume to sell on etsy from fabric left over from a tunic my daughter wanted for her SCA costume. I had just enough for an overdress and went out and bought 5 yards of a complementary fabric for the under dress and will post pictures of it when I finish.
Waste not want not I always say.

- Yes, Simplicity 3663 was -- apparently the number has been reassigned to a totally different pattern -- for a Mists of Avalon costume. I picked the patternMessage 2 of 7 , Apr 3, 2013View SourceYes, Simplicity 3663 was -- apparently the number has been reassigned to a totally different pattern -- for a "Mists of Avalon" costume. I picked the pattern at the time because it had a sleeve style that I liked and seemed perfect for a trim I'd made and then needed somethign to sew it on. (I do that a lot: embroider a length or two of trim without having any clue what garment it will end up attached to.)
Here is a link to the sketch I made of the dress when I was first testing ideas for it. (It's just the drawing that came with the pattern, colorized.)
I have a couple of photos of the dress itself, too, in my Photobucket library. I don't know if it shows well in the photo, but there is a narrow undersleeve to fake the look of a full kirtle underneath. (I live in a hot part of the US, and a full kirtle would have been too much.) I made the yoke of the same fabric as the rest of the dress (royal blue linen) rather than a constrast fabric, so the yoke itself right now is fairly unobtrusive.
I think a V-neckline (that is one of the options for a real bliaut, right?) may be the easiest to do starting from what I currently have, although I do like keyhole necklines. I'll play around with sketches a bit and see what I can come up with.
Thanks muchly for the advice.

- can you lay another pattern under the offending yoke section that has the proper neckline you want and re-cut from there? A little Frankenblauit but itMessage 3 of 7 , Apr 6, 2013View Sourcecan you lay another pattern under the "offending" yoke section that
has the proper neckline you want and re-cut from there? A little
"Frankenblauit" but it could work.
