A few things to consider before you purchase one of our patterns

***All Revival Clothing Patterns, both digital and print book formats, are FINAL SALE and not eligible for exchange or refunds***

Please note: our patterns are adapted from our original, industrial grade production patterns so they contain only the minimal markings used by professional production sewers and are intended for intermediate and advanced sewers. The instructions are a basic guide and written with the intent that the user understands patterns and clothing construction terminology and techniques. That said, we have used these patterns for many years in actual production, so they are vetted in terms of sizing and accuracy.

For the Printed Version:

This comes in the form of a spiral bound book with instructions followed by the pattern pages. To use, you cut out the pattern pages and tape them together for a full size pattern. For the sized patterns, all sizes are nested together. If you want use more than one size, you will need to trace the individual size onto semi transparent paper, like tracing paper, and use that to cut out the fabric.

For the Digital Version:

You will need access to Adobe Acrobat Reader version X or later in order to open the file and a printer.

In addition, in order to make large format patterns available to the home sewer, the patterns have been converted to a ’tiled’ .pdf which means, you will print many individual 8.5″ x 11″ pages and tape them together to make the full sized pattern.

  • After you purchase the pattern, you will receive an confirmation email with a link to download an encrypted .PDF, that includes instructions and the pattern itself. Thefiles may only be downloaded once.

Head-coverings were a critical component of dress in the Middle Ages. Hoods were common with men and women of all classes, and came in a wide variety of forms: long tailed or liripipe, short-tailed, dagged or straight hems, either pull-over or with an open front that was buttoned or pinned closed. Only the sumptuousness of the fabric, elaborateness of the dagging, or extreme length of the tail distinguished the hood of a duke from that of a villein. Men wore their hoods alone or with a plain linen coif beneath or a hat over, while women seem to have worn the hoods alone or with a wimple. In general, the most extreme version of this style with the longest tail or, liripipe, was typical in the mid to late fourteenth century while our short-tailed version is more typical of earlier fourteenth century portrayals. Made in fulled woo, so that the dagg edges  won’t fray, this hood is joined in the front for the ease of pull-over wear and is a stylish solution to keep warm while being completely authentic. It can also be rolled into chaperone hat.

As folks who live in our historical clothes we naturally have favorites and the 15th c. hat that developed out of the Wool Dagged Hood of the late 14th c. is a staff favorite. Its crazy and expressive and it just makes you wonder what the first medieval guy was thinking when he put his hood on his head upside down and inside out! It’s our bet there were some libations involved!

When shopping with us in person our customers often ask us to show them how to make their hoods in chaperones so we decide our long distance web customers also needed a visual primer to refer to. It really pretty simple, just like any new technique it just takes a little practice. Basically take your hood by the ‘face opening’ and start rolling it the outside. Then keep rolling until you almost can’t roll in any further. At that point, you should have a nice, thick roll – this is the brim of your chaperone. Put the chaperone on your head and adjust the the dags accordingly to taste – they can go to both sides, all directions or just one to side. The dags effectively end up looking like crazy, dagged hair and flop in all directions. Other options are draping the liripipe (long tail) around the neck, tucking it into the brim or winding it around the brim. We can document the chaperone worn in all these variations. So, be bold, experiment, have fun!
