Description

The Overskirt was worn by middle to upperclass ladies, usually with a matching low necked bodice or doublet.  Our version is based on an existing garment in a German Museum, but the same style was worn throughout Europe.  It has straight front and back panels and triangular side gores, and can be made with or without a train.  Instructions are given for cartridge pleating or flat flat pleats sewn by hand or machine.  Instructions are given for attaching the Overskirt to a bodice or doublet, creating a gown, or for making it up as a separate garment with a waistband.
The Overskirt pattern is not the same as that included in our now out of print Elizabethan Lady’s Wardrobe pattern.  It is a completely new draft, incorporating better fit and more historical accuracy.
Includes US Sizes 2-30 (Waist 60-118 cm = 24-47 1/2″).

The instruction manual includes historical notes, extensive fitting and sewing instructions, and design tips.
