Re: [Authentic_SCA] Re: quick & comfortable camping garb
- I made something like a Tunic of St. Louis
http://www.reconstructinghistory.com/beginners/StLouis.html out of a fairly
heavy wool, with long skirts and 3/4 sleeves and it gets heavy use at
camping events. I can't wash dishes or carry water in my heavy cloak, but
my cosy wool dress keeps me warm enough. I don't have sleeves dragging
through everything, and I also cut the bodice fairly close. It's much
easier than a cloak to maneuver in an outhouse, also. Inevitably, it's what
I throw on when the evening starts to get a chill, or for those midnight
runs, or fetching water first thing in the morning.
Of course, your climate may vary!

- I had a sneaky suspition that's what we were talking about. I have,
oh, maybe twenty pounds of the stuff laying around my house right
this minute. Having never made anything with boning, I'm only
guessing here, but I would think you'd have lots and lots left over
from the coil when you were done. When you do decide to break down
and buy some, let me know. I can either just mail you some that I
have (if I have the right size at the right time) or direct you to
one of my online suppliers, where you'll save some cash.
