Simple medieval dress pattern by Sindeon Simple medieval dress pattern by Sindeon
I made like 5 of these in different color. They are simple (it takes like 1-2 hours to finish one dress), look awesome and they fit any girl any size.

I have a medieval fest coming up and hope I can do this (even without sewing machine... - but they didn't have any back in the times either haha).
It looks very easy to make, even for beginners, so I am confident :D
Thank you so much for the pattern!!

You are welcome! It had to be simple so I can make more of them :) 
If you happen to have a chance, share with me a picture of your finished dress!

Hi there again!
I am so happy to say: I made it - and it is great!
I had my difficulties, because I have never sewn anything big before, and several times I was at the point of giving up. Also, I had very short time in the end and that stressed me out (homemade problem haha). It took me several days to make the dress (even though I borrowed a sewing machine eventually)
Nevertheless, I am so glad about this dress and despite all the mistakes I made, I love it! I used linen fabric and it wears very well.
And of course, I want to show you the result: sta.sh/01f42jd2kf5u and sta.sh/02gekqs0keqo
Thanks again for the pattern!

I just checked (since this is one of my oldest deviantion) that it has almost no description, sorry! The first image was the inspiration I found on the net, and the rest of the photos and the crafts are mine, as well as the pattern.

What are the measurements of each part (like neck width or arm hole width)? Because this looks amazing and I'd like to try making one! :D

To be honest, I never made a pattern concerning centimeters :) I can draw it up by hand on the textile, and if I need to check, I just take a T-shirt and copy the neck-arm parts.

I actually just kind of want 500 of these for my closet all the time? I'd never wear anything else and I'd be so okay with that?

This is brilliant and I want to try it so badly. Thank you so much for sharing!

How much fabric should I get for this? I'm new to sewing so I'm not 100% sure how much to get.

Sindeon Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2014
The top part of the drawing is actually a layout for the fabric. For the one you want to use as middle, you need 1/2 meter (sorry I only know metric), for the outside color 1 meter (if your textile is 1,5 m wide).

I know you've said you don't have a pattern for the hood, but do you have a picture of the hood from the back?  By the way, this is awesome! I can't wait to make one!!!

I plan on using this to make a dress for my wife, but are the measurements shown in centimeters?
Reply
:iconsindeon:
Sindeon Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2014
Yes they are centimeters. And the basic part of the design is the fact that in Europe, a roll of textile is 150 cm wide - so this is the "height" of the dress + laces.

Hi! This dress is amazing.. I want to sew it. What should I know? I never did not sewed. Is there a lining? Can I use satin for both colors? What I have to buy in addition to fabric, needle and thread?

:iconsindeon:
Sindeon Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2014
The best way to learn to sew is just start doing it! You dont need much special, although a sewing machine (a cheap used one) helps a lot. You can use satin of course! 
Well you just need fabric, needle and thread - and some free time. Also, if you want it to look like mine, buy some pretty pre-made border (you can buy it where you buy needles). It also helps making a nice edge if the sewing is not that nice.

For a mediaeval hood, research Liripipe. It's a hood, capelet and scarf (liripipe) in one. Basically take a meter of fabric, fold in half, wrong side out, so the selvedges will be the bottom hem of the capelet hood. Measure the wearer's head, around the head vertically at the longest point.

Firstly, form the face opening. Measure half that circumference down from the fold on the left, and add a seam allowance (depending if you're sewing it with mediaeval hems or machined, this will differ). Mark across. Measure along this a comfortable rolled edge (for the edge of the face-hole of the hood itself), including hem, add at least 5cm for the flat under the chin (more if you want the hood to stand out from the head), and then draw a right-angle down to the selvedge. Pin the line of the seam. First, sew the rolled edge, then tack the curve of the front of the throat (you may want that hem wider if you're adding buttons). Don't cut and hem yet. Check on the wearer, and fit the back of the capelet and hood with pins, loosely, from the selvedges in the small of the back to the rear of the head (not all the way to the top). Take it off the wearer and lay it flat again so you know you've got each side the same, and mark the hem into the waste side of the seam. Extend this from where you stopped at the rear of the head to the right side of the cloth a couple of inches plus the hem below the end of the fold. This is the liripipe: a meter of cloth should give one around 2' long, if you want it longer add more from the waste. Tack the rear of the hood, all but the right-hand edge, and fit again. Yes, it's inside out still.

Now cut out and start to make up. That starts with the liripipe extension, pattern-matching from the waste under the start of it: you should cut two rectangles double the depth of what you left unsewn on the top right. Sew them end-to-end, face-to-face so the hems are buried, hem if you intend using it as a pocket. Make up the front of the neck, then the rear, hemming and sewing to the end of that tail and then up to the fold, like a long sausage. Reverse and pray it came out right!

If you're into fancy, you can fit a licing (no need to fill the pipe, just a hood slightly smaller - you did make the outer slightly loose, didn't you? The hood will fit like a glove then), dag the edges (do this as a set of cut darts when you sew the lining in before reversing the lot, I'd suggest leaving the rear of the liripipe where it meets the hood open as the hole everything inserts through, then saddle-stitch it closed).

It can be worn as a hood, a hat (wrap the pipe around the forehead, and use that as the core to roll the rest up into a hat so the dags are the last things to get rolled in), a snood, and a scarf, wrapping the pipe around the throat.

No sorry I dont :( I never use patterns I just made this drawing for deviantart. But it is really just a simple hood sewn to the neck, with the front border continuing on the hood.

What is the best material to use for this?
Reply
:iconsindeon:
Sindeon Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2013
Well I used light materials (satin, cotton) but I guess you could try it with anything. 

I recommend using something light for the inner part because it has to fold, but for outside - you could even do it with velvet or brocade.
