Pattern: Simplicity 5925, from the Renaissance costume collection, size A (xs-xl)
Fabric: Mary Engelbreit for V-I-P by Cranston 2010, in black with cherry detail, about 3 yards
Notions: red thread, small button (from stash), black bias tape (from stash), white eyelet lace trim (less than a yard), 1/2″ elastic (less than a yd) for the cuff, 3/4″ elastic for the waist (about a yd)
Mods: I added 4 inches to the bottom of the legs, for a full ruffle, and didn’t use the cuff piece of the pattern. I formed a casing for the elastic at the knee ruffle by folding the black bias tape flat and stitching it down, approx 4 inches above the bottom edge.
