1500-1545 Woman's German Puff-and-Slash Pattern

PP46 - 1500-1545 Woman's German Puff-and-Slash Pattern. Sizes 6-20 included. Includes patterns for 6 gowns and 3 shoulder capes. Woman's styles in early Renaissance Germany developed from the Italian Renaissance styles but, like the men's fashions, went far beyond the Italian creations. Cartridge pleating was used extensively at the waist, and guards (trim of a contrasting fabric) became fashionable on the bodice and skirt. The bodice evolved one version with a cut-away front spanned by a bust band of another, elaborately decorated fabric, below which the bodice was laced together over the chemise (PP90) or a plastron. High standing collars became popular. Sleeves were slashed in many different ways, although less wildly than the men's sleeves, and different styles were tied, laced or sewn on. The bustband was also occasionally slashed. The chemise showed under the slashes, and was often elaborately decorated when it showed at the neck. Decoration was rich, and jewels and metallic embroidery were often used. Mediaeval Miscellanea has created Period Patterns for use in creating costumes that look and fit authentically. Each pattern includes many pages of historical notes, for back ground, variation, and enhancement of the finished costume. View I - Gown with very low, rounded neck and tight sleeves ending in deep cuff over the hands; neckline, bodice front, cuffs and skirt decorated by guards. Front opening. C. 1500-1510. View II - Gown with front cut wide, with narrow bustband and plastron, hooked and laced down one side front; deep U back neck; long tight sleeves ending in deep cuffs over the hands. Skirt seams are off-center. Neckline can be decorated with guards or trim. C. 1505-1515. View III - Gown with low rounded neck; tight sleeves unevenly slashed in 6 places to puff over a faked chemise undersleeve; higher waist. Sleeve trim. Front opening. C. 1510-1520. View IV - Gown with front cut wide, with low wide bustband and plastron hooked and laced down one side front; deep U back neck; upper and lower sleeves tied or laced along underarms and at elbow and shoulder, as desired. Skirt seams are off-center; neckline and sleeves can be decorated with guards or trim. C. 1510-1545. View V - Gown with front cut wide and high Saxon collar, with low wide bustband and plastron hooked and laced down one side front; tight sleeves slashed or paned at the elbow to puff over the chemise, ending in short cuffs over the hands.
