Made this for a medieval festival that I'm going to next week. It's my first time going and my first time sewing any kind of clothes... but the people I'm going with go every year and always dress up for it, so I figured I'd give it a try! Smiley
I opted for a pretty simple dress... It's made in blue linen and machine sewn, except for the lacing holes which I did by hand...

(sorry for the crappy lighting)




With light blue underneath (This picture shows the colour the best)


And with white, so I can change it up a little...


Comments and critiques are greatly appreciated!

It looks very authentic - and your hair is so pre-Raphaelite.  I hope you have a great time at the festival.  I expect you will get quite a few compliments.

Very pretty dress, it reminds me a little of Lord of the Rings.

Very nice!  Always happy to see someone going for an appropriate historical look.  Smiley  Did you use a specific pattern?

I used a Swedish pattern from http://www.sophiasatelje.se/forlaget-in-english.htm
It's not entirely historically correct, for instance it's a princess cut (I think that's what it's called) which I've heard wasn't used until after the middle ages... and of course it's linen and not wool, and I don't have an undergarment... but I think it looks accurate enough... At least it's not crushed velvet! Wink

Thanks! It was a bit scary to make since I'm new to sewing, but fun too! Smiley

What kind of dress are you making? I'm sure it'll be great... good luck!

I am going to start with a linen shift, hopefully today, from a pattern generator I found. I thought the Tudor styles where nice.
