Did you make the under shirt, and if you did what kind of fabric did you use and where did you get the pattern from. I just love it and would like to make one for the corsets I have and those I plan to make in the future.

So many ideas so little time. Will I ever get them all done?

I did make it. The fabric is a couple years old - it was another chemise first. It's a light cotton I picked up in the Red Tag section of Joann's. The pattern was also old - at least 10 years...it was a basic peasant shirt-style pattern made for regular-wear (not historical or costuming) so I adjusted it a bit to get more volume. The basic shape looks like this:

I used the front piece for both the front and back so it would dip in the back for my wings. I basically used that shape, folded in half on the fabric fold (actually, I lined up the pattern parallel to the folded edge but about 4" away from the fold to make it bigger - I wanted it to be over twice my bust measurement). Then I stitched it at the shoulders and side seams. I roll-hemmed the neckline and bottom edges with my serger and then placed bias tape along where the dotted grey line is. Then I just ran elastic through that. The original pattern called for cap sleeves to be set in but I skipped that. I didn't hem or serge the armholes, just left them a little fraying at the edge but you could make a facing, cut on the bias, to finish them if you want something finished.

You look, like I could have loads of fun with you!
The outfit is great, I envy it, and your friend as Dr. Schabel!

Thanks you, I don't recognize the name Dr. Schabel, though. Could you tell me more about the doctor?
Dr. Schnabel von rom (dr. Beak from rom)
here is a wiki I found a while back. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consequences_of_the_Black_Death#Other_effects
I don't know, if he was the first or the most famous, or if it was a common name for these doctors.
Which fair did you guys go to?
