      Sian, It's ok, I knew what you were trying to say. :)

      Billy, And I'll get some pics taken and send them to you in the next few days. :)

      I just wanted to comment that my last post was done on a blackberry (very tiny buttons). After reading it on the list it looks like I am almost illiterate. I'm just very bad at fast, blackberry typing.

      Slightly embarrassed,

      We made my boyfriends gambeson like a vest. The front has two ties across his chest. The gambeson goes down to his knees and is slit in the back, almost to the waist. The sleeves tie on at the shoulder (set slightly to the front not on top of the shoulder) which is great because he can wear it long sleeves, 3/4 length sleeves, short sleeves, or without sleeves at all depending on the weather and such. I could find you some pictures if you'd like to see it.

      I find that for a gambeson it fits better without the gores. U put my armor over the padded gambeson, so bunch is uncomfortale. If you put slits from just below your waist to the bottom in the fron, back and both sides, you have lots of freedom of movement, but no bunching.

      Yes, this helps very much! Thanks.

      One more question to all. I'm planning to construct a gambeson from

      the Reconstructing History pattern (yes, from a moving blanket). Any

      thoughts about the gores? If I understand the pattern correctly (and

      looking at the garb we did last night), the gores basically double the

      circumference of the bottom of the tunic (the four gores having a

      total length equal to the width of both the front and back of the

      tunic). My mind says this is going to be a bit much with quilted

      material. Has anyone out there built a gambeson like this? Advice

      is, as always, greatly appreciated.
