Elizabethan Loose Gown

I've just about finished a new loose gown for myself. I've been wanting something to wear over my kirtles and gowns- not really for warmth but for an extra layer.

It's made of a poly damask I got in the LA garment district- it's a silvery off-white color. Fully lined in off-white silk. I used the pattern from the Tudor Tailor but added a little collar and wings, and made it less full in the shoulders. And because I'm big on symmetry, everything is perfectly pattern matched! I am working on sewing on some frog closures- right now I have two sets on and four more to sew on, but it's wearable!
