>throughout much of Europe from the 13th through the 15th centuries. She'll 
>show you how to create a custom pattern for a bodice that can then be used 
>to create several types of gowns from this era. She'll also show you how 
>to alter your existing gowns for a closer-to-period look and fit. And 
>she'll attempt to convert you to the "no princess seams" school of thought. <g>
