- You're welcome. Glad to be of help. :) I'll go stick my nose back in my
Roman garb book. (I'm still trying hard not to drool all over the yummy

but you can do much better with this

- Well, OK, there's always The T-Tunic the Period Way, but you have to
have more help with that one when you first do it. I did it with help,
and I don't like the front gore and back gore look. Ick... There's more
than one way to do a tunic, though...

These sites were created be Matthew Newsome curator of
the Scottish Tartan Museum. He has done a lot of
research, in and out of time period and every thing he
writes is generally good.
His articles on SCA time period clothing include "The
Leine -- Early Gaelic Tunic", "The Early History Of
The Kilt", "Pre-Culloden Tartans", and his blog on
"Northumberland Tartan" from Friday, April 28, 2006.
Some of the "Pre-Culloden Tartans" are time period and
many are still being produced today. The tartans are
closest in appearance to time period tartans are:
"Northumberland Tartan", "Shepherd's Check", "Rob Roy
Tartan", "Moncrieff Tartan", "Old MacLachlan Tartan",
and "Robin Hood Tartan". In fact the "Braveheart
Tartan" worn in the movie was not that far off, in
appearance, thought the kilt the shirt and other
aspect of his clothing were wrong.
