FW: pattern for cotehardie
- -----Original Message-----
This is a decent getting started pattern if you can't draft but want
something a little more shape then a tunic dress.
Burda 7977. Can be purchased at Jo Ann's. Recommend adding gores to the
front and back seams for extra fullness. Needs to be a bit more fitted to
your body for support. The sleeves in the Middle Ages had the seam in the
back of the arm and not under it, so if you know how to tweak a pattern you
might want to alter the sleeve seam. Goes up to a size 24 which is usually
equivalent to a size 22 off the rack.
I don't recommend that cap. It's trying to be a turret/fillet cap and
barbette (two separate pieces).
One who can do simple altering of a pattern but can't seem to get the hang
