An Elizabethan era pattern, created by Deb Salisbury, owner of The Mantua-Maker Historical Sewing Patterns.
Underpinnings create the shape of fashion. One of the most important shapers of the Renaissance was the farthingale. The Spanish Farthingale was cone or bell shaped. In the early years of this period, it was worn with the hoops showing and decorated. By 1550, the farthingale was rarely seen without an over-skirt.
This pattern includes 11 pages of instructions with historical tips, and 3 pattern sheets. It is printed on bond paper, and enclosed in a white paper envelope.
All sizes Petite – X-large are included. Fabric amounts depend more on height than on size – it is set up for someone who is 5’2” to 5’11” (marked as Petite, Medium, Tall and Very Tall). If you are shorter or taller than the marked increments, you will need to shorten or lengthen this pattern.
Please read all instructions before touching your fabric. There are tips along the way to make your life easier!
