an undertunic with a regular round neckline and an opening down the front,
and an overtunic that closed in front like a coat. It seemed the logical
thing to do and kept the pre-Mongol line.
I did cheat: I used snaps on the undertunic (a tape of snaps, easy to put on,
and almost invisible because you don't sew on the individual snap closures).
If I was in a real big hurry, I just snapped the top snap closed, buttoned
the outer tunic, and belted the whole thing. It worked.
Nursing at events worked out just fine: it's such a period thing to do, and
all the women thought it was cute. Everyone was very nice and accomodated me
when I needed to change my daughter (no, I stuck with disposable diapers;
there are limits to what I'll do for authenticity, and the comfort and health
of my kids are definitely outside the limits).
