I suppose this happens to us all as time marches on. I'm going to do as much as I can from now on, I don't want to be on my deathbed and regretting never taking the plunge.

Glad to see you back, Henry. These places have had some blank spots since you were gone.
I've have mine own health issues, and seen of the inside of a hospital more than I wanted to.
Glad you can use your hands again. Hope any other health problems disappear.

I kinda had an idea.... care if someone can open a Discord server for this? If you are wondering, Discord is a light and quick IM service app. Not as bulky as Skype.

Instant messages might not be ideal since members are in different geographical locations and logged on at different times of day.

Thanks gents. It seems I need to think about historical drafts. The link to the priest cassock is excellent, but difficult to read.

Btw, I ran into a firefox (and chrome) extension which overrides Photobucket's severed links for embedded photos and also allows you to download the images. If you try to download them now they don't show up in the image viewer; not mine anyway.

Chrome version
Firefox version

I don't know why the casting people are surprised when we point out that casting a 6’5” tall size 48 chest  to understudy a 5’6” size 38 costs money in additional costuming.

 ;D I'd like to see the expressions on your faces when you receive this information. Maybe the casting people think the sleeves will just ride up with wear?

All the costumes are catalogued and stored in a very large warehouse once a production is finished.
Designers do pull older costumes for re use, so they may get altered, and many costumes become available for rental from other theatre or film productions.

There are some pieces that likely sit unused for many years, because of odd design/colour/shape/fit so every decade or so, they cull out certain pieces and have a sale.

The actors who have very specific fit issues or size/height often have to be built for.

It΄s a more modern pattern, but I΄m sure you can adapt it for a robe:

Your yellow example is obviousely a pattern from at least 1850 ore even earlier. I΄m sure it will have a very crooked front shoulder, a shoulder seam shifted to the back and slimmer curvier sleeves than the modern pattern.

Maybe Jruley has an historical pattern?
