Reconstructing History #RH017 - Medieval Women's Dress Sewing Pattern

Buy our full-size paper pattern with complete instructions and historical notes for 14th century Kirtle or "Cotehardie" with long buttoned or laced or short sleeves with or without tippets.  Northern European and Italian variants included.  A variety of closures and neckline options are also included.

It may seem rather academic but the accuracy of your gown depends upon how accurately you construct it. Of course you can make a fantasy version. But if you want to be historically accurate, it's best to look less like a pink princess and more like the peasants down the street. Also boots, hats, a cloak, and a bodice do not belong with this outfit. Hoods are worn. The hair can also be worn uncovered in elaborate braided hairstyles. Creating a wonderful woolen gown is all in the cutting. A color you love will make a real beauty. Black or blue or yellow or crimson or even cloth of gold will make a garment elegant in its simplicity.

RH017 fits busts 28"-48" and waists 23"-41". All Sizes in one envelope.  
RH017Q fits busts 48"-60" and waists 41"-53". All Sizes in one envelope.
Or order a Made to Measure pattern in your personal measurements.  

Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you've come to expect from Reconstructing History.
