Demonstrations>Pattern Development> Basic Pattern Drafting Does the thought of making your own patterns leave you in a cold sweat? Does the thought of making patterns for other people make your hands clammy? Are you working from a pattern that you've gotten to fit by changing it over a number of failed tries and mistakes in good fabric?
For 1578 , the look for most women should approximate that shown on the right, which is taken from the "Wedding at Bermondsey". Most women should wear a smock with a high collar and ruffles (low status) or seperate, starched ruffs (middling to high) at neck and wrists. Over this is worn a long skirt pleated to a waistband, with a contrast coloured bodice over the top. The bodice is front laced, with a point at centre front. The Tudor Costume Page
