Juan de Alcega Tailor’s Pattern Book: Manteo or a Skirt of Cloth Part 2 – Construction


After way too long here is part two of the manteo or petticoat (part 1 written in 2014 can be found here), to recap here is the layout suggestion I ended up using from Alecga.

Manteo de pano para muger

Since my fabric is 60 inches wide I did not need to piece the “B” section and was able to cut it as one curved shape.

I changed the measurements to fit my own size.
