Make this simple but lovely women's smock

Even if you aren't a Bohemian Bathhouse Babe, there is substantive evidence that some medieval women wore a sleeveless shift or smock under their tight-fitting kirtles or cotes, just like we see in on the Bathhouse Keepers in the margins of the Wencelslaus Bible. 

Buy our full-size paper pattern with complete instructions and historical notes for 14th century sleeveless smock or shift based on pictorial evidence and an extant example.

Fits busts 28"-48" and waists 21"-41". All Sizes in one envelope.

Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you've come to expect from Reconstructing History.

Suggested Fabrics: lightweight linen
Yardage Requirements: 3 yds 45" or 2 yds 60" wide
