Italian Renaissance Cioppa
I made this for a concert by the New World Renaissance Band. This was my first attempt at a "historical" garment and from a pattern Nora had. I was trying to do this cheaply, and it pretty much showed it - plus it was one of my early sewing projects. I don't think I did the box pleats in the body of the garment correctly, and the sleeves kept stretching out because the fabric was a knit.
