    I’m a theatrical costume designer, and had some unexpected difficulties with this pattern’s sizing. Despite taking my usual care in cutting and seaming, as the garment developed it became tighter and tighter fitting. When the lining was sewn in, the entire item was too narrow for the decidedly lean performer, and only the addition of gores made it wearable. The sizing on the collar was actually reversed, so that it it was way too big for the garment. None of these things happened with the previously constructed Kontusz, so I am baffled! (The Zupan turned out nicely, with considerable rescue effort involved.)

    Thank you so much for another great pattern. I used them to make the Zupan and Kontusz. (photos in the gallery)

    This pattern was very easy to use. The directions were straight forward and I am very happy with the results. I’ve made 3 zupans from this pattern already.
