go to youtube to find out how to draft a pattern that will fit you, they are shown in normal or princess style (that is the style of the bodice shown above) then using the above pattern draft it to fit yourself. The measurements would have been different for every person in period so that is why actual measurements aren’t usually given on period style patterns. I started out totally reliant on purchased patterns to make everything before getting fed up and learning to draft my own designs and I am so pleased I did. Am going to use this pattern to make a dress for my daughter first and then for myself using a cheap cotton sheet for the under dress and a cheap sari for the over dress (not using period style fabrics, just the cheapest I can find that will look good and can be worn).
I tried to get the pattern shown..clicked on image as instructed..got an error message.
Me too – and what size is it supposed to be anyway?
Well that was disappointing.
