Circa 2005 – Quick-and-dirty project using flannel cotton from the dollar table. The basic style should be suitable for most early to early-middle medieval garments. This particular item is meant to be a cold-weather undergown, but I’ve also worn it around the house as a winter nightgown. The cut uses no pattern – it’s simply rectangular panels, four for the body and two for the sleeves, with the leftover triangles set into the sides as gores. Because I’m fairly small and the sleeves are comparativly wide, I got away without underarm gussets. The neckline was more-or-less guesswork – I’m surprised it came out as well as it did, because I haven’t been able to do it properly since.
