Alcega

Wilhelmina has now a spiffy farthingale.

Making small farthingales is a pain in the butt, but it was very educational where cut and construction is concerned.

And speaking of farthingale cut and construction, Juan de Alcega was a genius.

I must try some of his other patterns some time soon.

Alcega took a bit of mental gymnastics for me to be able to read the patterns. Then, suddenly, my brain got stronger and they made sense. But yeah, he was a genius. I wish there were an Alcega for 14th C. stuff. No such luck.
