Medieval (ca. 1400-1500) Garments
Female 57-60 cm
The Medieval gowns were created from an actual pattern dated from 1450s. I modified the pattern
to work for the ball jointed dolls. These gowns have set-in narrow sleeves which come to a point
over the hand.
There is only a small train with this medieval style. These gowns fit from 62-65cm dolls, the
taller doll will have less pooling of the gown on the floor. The gowns have been made with
either heavy stretch velvet or lighter weight panne' material which IS quite stretchy, so it
is likely to accomodate most bust sizes and body measurements.
Please take your time putting the doll's hands thru the close fitting sleeves!
It is unlikely that you'll need to take her hands off. However, IF your doll's fingers
are widely spaced, you may have to remove the hands and use an S-hook while you pull the gown up.
The cloaks are made with a romantic hood, and have five panels to the
body, so they drape beautifully. The cloaks also feature arm openings
which are hidden when unused. The gowns and cloaks 'pool' more on the
floor with the shorter dolls.
