Susan Malovrh: A Giornea

For the Over and Above Challenge I made a giornea which is an open sided over-gown worn for a brief time in Florence from around 1486 to 1490. I adapted the pattern from Period Patterns of the tabard by adding a couple extra inches on each of the back sides so I could add dags as shown in The Birth of John the Baptist by Domenico Ghirlandaio. 

My giornea is made from mystery bargain table fabric and the back is lined with silk. The front and back center seams were machine stitched. I then made 2 inch slashes along the back side seams, marked the dags with chalk, and hand stitched them. I machine stitched the back neckline and bottom edge and turned it right side out. The front was then attached at the shoulder seams. The front sides, neckline and bottom are roll hemmed.
