Yellow Cote (late 14th - early 15th Century)

Trimming seam allowances
Not much done at this point. I cleaned up the pattern pieces. I used a T pin (head of the pin is about 1/2 inch (1 cm) long) to mark the seam allowance on the dress. I then trimmed all the excess off of the pattern.
Place the T-pin so the body of the pin is parallel with the seam mark and the edge of the pin head is on the seam mark. Use a sharpie (black marker) to make a dot at the other side of the head of the pin. Do this about ever 1/2-1 inch (1-2 cm) along the seam. Trim seam to follow dots.
