For the first birthday of my goddauther I didn't know what I could offer her so when her mom told me she will go to a medieval activitie and have no dress for her I decided to make one.My first attempt was a failure.A few month later another activitie to go during the summer so this time was the good one.
I use a synthetic fabric very similar to bamboo and spandex(fro a touch of extensibility).I had embroidery but I have to put a lining under it because the fabric is thin and extensible.
For the pattern , I choose one I've seen in the french book Le costume médiéval de 1320 à 1480 written by Florent Véniel from the Heimdal édition.All I have was a drawing no bigger then this picture and a scale so I draw it on a paper and hope it will be find.
The pattern looks like a cross or close of it .I also make a pair of pant to go under the dress , even if it's in the summer the dress is a little too light for a child of this age.Of course who said summer mean sun so I made a little hat to protect her.Her mom take many pictures and send them to me since I wasn't to attend to the event .
My goddauther in the dress , hopefully the day was very sunny because everytime I go to this activitie it rain and it's cold.She is so cute.
