The Italian Lady's Cioppa Modification Package is a supplement to our Italian Gamurra pattern.
The gamurra was the basic Italian woman’s dress from 1490-1530. It was worn mainly at home, and when going outdoors or for more formal occasions, an over garment was worn. The cioppa is one such garment.
The bodice of the cioppa has the option for a lower or higher waistline, and the neckline comes down to the waistline in a "V."
The skirt is full and pleated to the bodice.
There are two sleeve options: a long enclosed sleeve with an opening for the arm to come through, and a two part sleeve with fullness at the cap.
Sizes 2- 30 are included in every package.
The instruction manual includes historical notes, extensive fitting and sewing instructions, and design tips.
This pattern is printed on bond paper.
IMPORTANT! Please remember that this is NOT a stand alone pattern. If you don't have the Italian Lady's Gamurra pattern, it will not be useful to you.
