Re: [Authentic_SCA] Re: Top Five Reasons Why I Like Using Gores & Gussets
- Admittedly, I'm working from memory, but I think the St. Louis tunic has front
and back center gores, but no side gores and no underarm gussets. The Bockston
tunic has front and back center gores, plus side gores and underarm gussets. I
believe they're both shirt length, although I've used the Bockston pattern for
a floor-length dress a couple of times.
