    Easy pattern and fun to do. I sewed the complete outfit, except fot the shift and jacket, by hand in under 18 hours while conversing with friends and family. And even had a cat on my lap at one point while we were playing cards. Yes, I was sewing then.

    This pattern creates a very true to image 16th century Flemish working outfit, IF you do exactly as the pattern instructs.

    This pattern is more “sewing origami” than many modern seamstresses are used to. The entire bodice starts as a big rectangle with a few partial snips, fold & then sew. I was confused at first, so I printed a mini paper version, followed the steps exactly & voila. The result is incredible.

    When it came time to complete the corresponding jacket, I was no longer confused or worried; the beautiful results speak for themselves!
