I finished my new blue short-sleeved 12th century pull over dress already some time ago but finally I found some spare time, sunlight and – last but not least – a friend who helped me to take some photos of me wearing it – btw. thanks to Philipp at this place!
I didn’t use and well, I not even have had a special pattern for this pull over dress – like most of my dresses I adjusted the “pattern” directly – working with the fabric while wearing it. I always see this as a part of my sewing process.
…and yes, before you ask, the sewing and the embroidery of this dress is done completely by hand
Though I got a little bit crazy on the embroidery side, this was meant to be a rather “simple” pull over dress and will surely not be my last one because I want some “simple” pull over dresses in my wardrobe that don’t require a half hour to get in or out again – damn lacing – *lol*… Now I also want to make some simple full length pull over overdresses with nice maunches which I can wear underneath…
Yes, I can say that I am very pleased with my new short pull over dress with short sleeves – it is very comfortable and though it is very tight concerning the fit, I can move in it without any problems or restrictions – and I definitely love the 12th century embroidery – yeah, I really love it when a plan comes together.
