My first attempt at a German dress was inspired by the Ausberg Panels. I used a Reconstructing History pattern but I had to modify it so much to fit me that the final bodice pattern looked nothing like the pattern that came out of the package. Nevertheless, I like this dress. I’ll have to make a second purple dress with the proper sleeves, eventually.

My second attempt at German was based on a woodcut. My stripes are too wide to match the image, but it’s a good attempt.
I’m disheveled from water bearing on the field.
