|Pattern Description: From sewingcentral.com: Costume Connection 11th Century Woman, Supertunic, Tunic, and Veil. Floor length tunic has narrow sleeves, supertunic is knee length overtunic and has open hanging sleeves. Extremely simple construction for many early period personae.|
Pattern Sizing: S-XXL Multi-sized, from 32 1/2" bust through 48" bust.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Kinda sorta.
Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn't use them, it's a very simple pattern to put together, but they looked adequate.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the look and the overall easiness of construction.
Fabric Used: For the tunic I used muslin, for the overtunic I used a linen-cotton blend. For the veil I used cotton something or other.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I shortened the tunic considerably (about 2.5 inches), shortened the supertunic sleeves, made the head hole in the veil smaller, and changed the direction of the overtunic neck facings for decoration purposes. I lined the lower part of the sleeves.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I would sew it again with some changes and I recommend it.
Conclusion: Good, simple garb ensemble but needs a bit of adjustment to look like the envelope picture. Fore a detailed review, check out my blog post CC 1102W
