12th/13th century ladies dress patterns needed

Post by minti35 »

I've had no luck finding a medieval kirtle & surcoat to buy, so I have now decided to opt for having one made to fit.

Can anyone recommend where to buy medieval dress patterns from??

Thanks

Where have you been looking for these items? I know of at least half a dozen traders (including myself) who carry this type of stock ( for varying costs)

If you let me know where you are based and your budget I can point you in the right direction as to local events etc.
