But i used over 10 m of fabric and the "fur trims" are wadding scraps.
I used the patterns on http://lochac.sca.org/collegium/notes/Houppelands%20Article%20by%20Lorix.pdf
Answers to questions:
The greatest difficulty was the sheer amount of fabric in one garment. The body of the gown is a circle which hangs from the shoulders. (see link for pattern). The sleeves are just over-sized sleeves with a cuff of fur at the end. A slit in the front side to allow you to use your hands without the sleeve dragging in everything. The amount of sewing is minimal - except the enormous hem...... I am still debating a "fur" trim on that - I do have enough wadding scarps.
