Pattern: 16th Century Women’s Renaissance Chemise or Smock

• Sewing Pattern – 16th Century Women’s Smock or Chemise. Sizes S-XL. All patterns in one envelope • Pattern based on a real garment found in Germany, but style can be documented all over Western Europe in the 1500s from Italy to England to Germany to Sweden. • Perfect for Living History, Theatrical Productions, and other Costumed Events! • Great for SCA, Living History Renaissance Festivals, Elizabethan Events, Scottish Highland Games, and Medieval Fairs • Instructions are included and they are detailed and fully illustrated with full color photos throughout Based on a real example in the Bayerisches National Museum in Munich, Germany dated to circa 1550, this smock aka chemise pattern features a gathered neckline and sleeve edges sewn into a collar and cuffs with a separate ruffle for each area. It also features underarm gores and a center front neck opening which is held closed by a tie inserted through eyelets. It is a full length garment, but the pattern can be shortened if a half-length smock is desired. About the sample: This sample garment which was used for the packaging and final test pattern is made entirely of white linen and features some reverse smocking at both neckline and sleeve base to help hold the pleated gathers in place. The black cuff and collar needlework were inspired by the 1531 “Portrait of a Lady in Green” by the Italian painter Agnolo Bronzino. There wasn’t enough of the collar body artwork visible in the portrait to re-create it, so a pomegranate blackwork design was used instead. Pattern fits up to XL. All sizes in one envelope. This is a pattern, not a finished garment. Historical notes and embellishment suggestions included. Suggested Fabrics: white or black light weight linen or linen/cotton blend. Yardage Requirements: 8 yards of 45″+ wide. Order this pattern...
