I made the underdress a mish-mash of S7964 and an Elizabethan t-tunic pattern. This part was completed in 2008.
It was the surcoat that held me up. I finally found a pattern I thought would work with a few changes. I added fullness to the skirt, making the panels more like a circle skirt and angling from the knees to roughly the ankle in back. I changed the shape of the center front pieces and made them a collar. The bottom contrast on the sleeves was changed to more of a bell shape. The bodice of the surcoat is fully lined as are the cuffs and I stiffened the collar and cuffs with interfacing -- light on the collar and heavier on the cuffs.
