This Medieval costume pattern is a full length princess line costume. With a square neckline.

The hood follows the neck line down and finishes just above the bust, which give the effect of an oversized hood. An additional 20cm has been added to the over all dimension of the hood to provide the bellowed sides, you can always enlarge the height of the hood if needed.

The dress features 12 loops on the front and 12 on the back for tightening the dress. No other fastening is needed if using stretch fabrics as recommended, but for woven fabrics please see the notes included on adding a zip to the dress.

The drop sleeves can be worn either up or down. The centre top of the sleeve is left open and is tied up with ribbons when worn up, the sleeves will hang from the elbow when worn down. A removable cuff is worn over the sleeve, but can be stitched in place if needed.

This dress will require an intermediate skill level of sewing, and an understanding of pattern markings. If in any doubt please seek a good sewing book. You will be required to make loops, hem, and fit sleeves.

Full colour graphic sewing instructions are included.
