11289Re: [SCA Newcomers] making garb
- Sep 1, 2007Welcome to the SCA!!!
In truth I've used commerical patterns several times
and then (with research) adapted them to a more
historically accurate garment. I have however made my
own patterns using (don't laught) a t-shirt, masking
tape and sisscors. Not to mention making damn good use
of the laurels in my kingdom. I currently wear a good
deal of german garb which is quite form fitting and
with the use of a mannaquin it certainly does help!!!
I hope this helps?
