So I have a drapped Kirtle partern that I can pretty much make in my sleep at this point. Below is an image from the class I teach on drafting a kirtle pattern, drawn by my friend Heather.
The second image from the left is the one I will use to modify my 13th C kirtle pattern to at 15th C German appropriate kirtle pattern.
The Kampfrau will also be based on this. Alterations to be made:
- Square and lower the neckline in front an back.
- Side lacings instead of front lacings as pictured.
- I want the front to be a solid peice of fabric too, so I'll have to move my "boob bump" from the inside edge to the outside edge of the pattern.
- Sleeveless and thin strapped (maybe 1 in)
