Ancient Minoan / Mycenaean Costume PDF Tutorial
This is a costume tutorial, with instructions to draft and sew your very own Minoan / Mycenaean clothing, inspired by ancient artwork. This project is perfect for your next fantasy or reenactment event!
This listing is for a Pattern Drafting and Sewing Tutorial that includes directions to create both male and female tunics, belt, and three variations of wrap skirts / kilts, based on historical research and experimentation.
Because you will be drafting your pattern based on our layout and your measurements, it can fit any size. You can use this to achieve an absolutely perfect fit!
The tutorial includes diagrams for measurements, shapes of pattern pieces, and how to use your measurements to size the pieces perfectly. This means you will draw out your own personally drafted and sized pattern that will fit you better than a standard size. The shapes for these pieces are relatively simple.
In your download you will receive:
+ 19 Page Tutorial Book (with photographic instructions)
female tunic: 3 yards (meters) fabric, 13-16 yards trim*
male tunic: 2.5 yards (meters) fabric, 9-12 yards trim*

belt: ¼ yard (meter) fabric

each kilt: 2 yards bias binding (or make your own binding)
*I recommend you pattern your pieces before deciding how much trim to buy. That way, you can measure and buy the exact right amount.
We believe this project is possible for all sewing levels. However, please be aware that we are not teaching you how to sew, and it is best if you know the following:
A. How to measure using a tape measure. *
B. Basic sewing using a home sewing machine.
C. How to align both straight and curved edges for sewing.
