Yes, 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.
