    I made this pattern along with RH610 (Doublet, Shirt, and Hosen) for my 10 year old son. The end results were stunning and the patterns worked very well. I like to make costumes as historically accurate as is reasonable and the historical notes included in the RH patterns really help me make sure I get it right. I made the sleeveless jerkin and lined it with the same material I used for the doublet (RH610) and the finished look was very nice. When making the gown I would definitely recommend keeping the upper sleeves open (per the pattern illustration). The pattern instructions are easy enough to follow (I think it forgets to tell you to sew the gown back pieces together before joining to gown front; but I think most people would know to do that anyway.) I would not recommend these patterns for a beginning sewist because they do assume some knowledge of sewing technique (ie; there is not an illustrated picture with each and every tiny step); but an intermediate or advanced sewist would have no problem completing the project. I think even an advanced beginner would be fine. The historical note explaining how the garment should fit on the wearer were especially helpful as I was cutting down this pattern — for adults — to fit my son. A child’s body shape and size are different; but the notes and instructions were enough to make sure the pattern was adapted correctly.
