14th centuryPoulaines tutorial by Idzit 14th centuryPoulaines tutorial by Idzit
Hokay... um this is a hefty one folks. This is a rather complicated project, which was requested by ~GuiltyWithGlee. This is a fairly advanced tutorial, as there are some difficult parts to it.

**Please note the digitized pattern is NOT YET UP. I still have to make it. Please be patient. Thank you.

Otherwise, please enjoy, and if you actually get around to making these... I wanna see!! The ones I made were based on paintings from the 14th century. I made the pattern myself. They may not be 100% accurate, but they're fun for Medieval Faires, and whatnot. The ones I made have four layers of canvas and one of faux-leather for the sole. Surprisingly enough, you still feel every little rock when you step on them. If you make them a teensy bit bigger, you could slip a pair of ballet flats inside to save your soles... so to speak. ha ha

Please let me know if I've forgotten anything, or if something doesn't make sense.

They look great! I've tried to make a couple of turnshoes in the past, and have done a decent pair of moccasins, but these look the business :) Can't wait for the pattern :D

I really need to learn how to sew, this would be fun.

do you think a regency-era day dress would be simple to start with? nothing fancy.

... I think it would be an okay place to start. There are a few good patternses out there;
McCalls #3954 - not an actual costume pattern, but the dress is PURELY Regency
Butterick #6630 - is megapurdy
Butterick #4890 - is Soooooooooooo Josephine Bonaparte... ♥

I actually have the second pattern you listed there. it was going to be a prom dress that never happened...lol.

The styling of the first one is definitely regency! I was thinking of going with a sense and sensibility pattern, because I've seen a lot of good results from their patterns and lots of people consider it simple for a beginner.

I could make a couple of these x)
