Looking for a pattern for a new project?  Here is a list of 5 patterns from Reconstructing History that I totally love:

  1. The Geoffrey Nightcap Embroidery Pattern: Created by Laura of Extreme Costuming this nightcap pattern is simple and elegant.  A great place to start for a new embroiderer!
  2. The 1560s-70s Flanders Gown: I’ve been working with this pattern for my own Flanders Gown and I’ve been very pleased with the clarity of the directions and how easy it has gone together.
  3. The Netherlandish Working Women’s Outfit: Netherlandish working class clothing is always elegant and comfortable.
  4. The 14th century Grand Assiette Pourpoint: It can be hard to find a pattern for the grand assiette pourpoint and draping a pattern on yourself is difficult.  I was really pleased with the quality of RH’s pattern and I’m looking forward to starting mine as soon as my Flanders Gown is finished.
  5. The Fruitseller or Common Woman’s Dress: I just love the simple elegance of RH’s Italian working women’s dress pattern.
