15th century Kirtle and hood by silverstah 15th century Kirtle and hood by silverstah
Mid 15th-century brown linen kirtle with waistseam. Based off of the various images compiled by Marie Chantal Cadieux, here:[link] Full circle skirt, lightly gathered into the bodice. Self-drafted pattern. All visible stitches are handsewn, interior seams are done by machine.

The sleeves are black cotton velveteen pin-on sleeves, lined in linen.

Basic London-style hood ([link] ... dhd1a.html) done in some fuzzy velvet brocade, lined in silk. Hand-cast buttons (not by me!). Again, visible stitches done by hand, everything else machined.

Issues: the bodice is a little long, which contributes to the wrinkles in the back. The skirt is obviously WAY too long, needs to be hemmed. Overall, though, it's a very comfortable, serviceable and versatile dress.

Love it! Was there a particular pattern you used, or did you wing it?

Thanks for the comment! I used my basic "Gothic Fitted Dress" pattern block, and added the gathered skirt instead of making it a full length dress.
