Pattern for Women's Tudor or Elizabethan by TheTudorTailor on Etsy

Pattern for Womens Tudor or Elizabethan Waistcoat - Large Sizes.

I haven't seen this pattern for the Viking apron-dress before, but it makes sense. The trim on the side is wrong, though; on the extant piece from Hedeby, the trim was placed over a dart.

Viking Hanging Dress from Haithabu. laid out opposite from a modern garment, but the selvedge was incorporated into strengthening it, and there is minimal waste of valuable material.

Tudor women’s kirtle from 1600 @ Janet Comber – Time Tailor --> inspiration for sleeves. Mind: they only tie the sleeves on the top, there is no cord in the armpit area

It's past the era we're acting in, but I like the overall look of this top for a doublet. I think it's the square neckline that catches my eye.
