Renaissance Festival Dress: A Closer Look at the Envelope

Sometimes when you start on a pattern it's hard to make sense of all the information on the back. Today I take a closer look at Butterick 4827 and weed through all the information to get to the stuff that applies to me.....And then I went shopping.

The orange fabric is a crepeback satin in Autumn (it was a red tag fabric at Jo-Anns)
The blue fabric is a Brocade fabric: turquoise paisley
Pellon 910 Sew in Featherweight interfacing.
Gutterman Sew all Thread: Color 474 "Curry"
Gutterman Cotton Thread: Color 7532
5/32 Eyelet kit with tool
Black Hook and Eye

And now I'm excited to get started on this project.
Happy Sewing

  1. I am so happy I found your blog. I am making this dress for Great Western War (i'm in the SCA) and although I've made a skirt and two apron dresses, this dress for some reason was so confusing to me. So I am incredibly grateful for your blog posts that will help to walk me through making this gown.
