Are you going to buy or make this dress? I bought a pattern the other day that you could probably use. If not I'd say all the Narnian costumes so far are pretty medieval and as they're only 4 pieces of material that could be reasonably easy to make. Not a sewing person, fancy dress shop's really your only hope.

I used this smock pattern generator for the measurements for the first layer.

and found a great website that I have now lost found again! that gave great tips.
I bought some linen in natural, have washed and dried it and am handsewing the seams.
I expect this could take some time.......

I'm jumping on the medieval bandwagon and have been planning a dress inspired by "Ophelia" and "Miranda" by John William Waterhouse.  Just can't decide whether to lean more toward Victorian construction or medieval construction...

Lyla61, I forgot to say, would love to see pics of what pattern you are using.
Ludi, would love to see pics of what you are aiming for also, and can you explain the differance between Victorian and Medieval construction?
I have been hemming all my pieces first then stitching them together. That was how the website I am using suggested. Have made surprisingly good progress on the shift.

thanks for the fabulous links!
I am holding off on cutting my neckline till the rest of the shift is finished, as I might change time periods.
I esp love that last link and think I could make that.

well three days of hand sewing later, I have a finished shift, (exept neckline), but everything else sewn and hemmed.
Tired but happy.
