MA003 - The Elizabethan Wardrobe Accessories Pattern completes both men and women's Elizabethan wardrobes. Many a stunning Renaissance costume has been painstakingly constructed and fitted, representing uncounted hours of work (or much more!) and hundreds of dollars in materials -- only to have the effect ruined by something as simple as lack of a hat. Fortunately, that omission is easy to correct.
This package provides the patterns you need to complete the wardrobes begun with either Elizabethan Lady's or Gentleman's patterns. Here you will find the elegant ruffs and distinctive hats and headpieces of the period, for both men and women. This pattern has a total of seven hats, neck and wrist ruffs, standing ruff with supportasse, two purses, a fan, and a lady's needlebook. This package includes: Tall Hat, Soft Cap, Attifet, Caul, Biggin cap, French Hood, Round hat. Neck and wrist ruffs, Supportasse (support for standing ruff), Round Pouch, Sweet Bag, Needlebook (with optional wallet insert). These patterns were developed using a computerized drafting and grading system, to ensure accuracy of fit and consistency between sizes. This is being followed by an extensive program of testing and feedback to ensure usability, simplicity, and ease of construction.
They are multi-sized 2 to 30. Three separate drafts were made and graded to avoid distorting the fit and proportions of the garments. The patterns have been tested by sewers with a wide range of body types and sewing expertise.
The 85-page manual contains a wealth of valuable millinery techniques, detailed instructions, and illustrations. This includes some of the pieces that have, until now, been difficult to get right, such as the attifet, French hood, standing ruff and supportasse. The manual is completed by the usual layout diagrams, appendices, bibliography, and an attractive cover insert. Elizabethan Costume, Renaissance Costume, Medieval Costume, Tudor Costume, SCA Costume.
