54201Re: [Authentic_SCA] Mac bible gambeson pattern
- Aug 30, 2006Over mail is interesting...I wonder if they had some sort of armor plate
built in? Later jacks and jupons frequently did.
There's an excellent picture of a quilted tunic (*not* a gambeson, alas -
appears to be a civilian garment) in Averil Colby's book *Quilting*. Colby also
has a few nice pictures of quilted military garments, although nothing from
the Mac Bible. I'd definitely check that out as well, if only for background.
