- Hello all,
I am a new member to this list, I was happy to find
it. I wanted to greet you all instead of just lurking
I am currently living in Champaign IL, but mostly
participating in SCA type things in Chicago (where I
was for the last 4 years). But I also hail from
I recently change, or shall we say, further crafted my
persona to by russian and I am not going about the
task of creating a story/ a wardrobe.
Outside the SCA, I am a big Russophile as well. I have
lots of questions and will definately come to the
Pennsic meeting, but since I have to make some garb
before then, I have one quick question about that.
All my research points me in the direction of a tunic
like garment for early (13th C) russian garb, for easy
assembly, ubiquitousness, periodness, etc.
But what I also keep seeing is that this tunic is
constructed from 4 rectangles of fabric; two that are
the front and back panels, and two that are either
sleeves in entirety or squares that get sewn in
*under* the sleeves...
Does this sound about right to you? (it is hard to
describe a pattern with words)
Does someone out there have a good link to actual
directions to making either of these styles?
I would appreciate any help!

You and I *definitely* need to get together.
As for the dress you are describing, I think I have seen reference to it.
It is a pattern that I have on my drafting "to do" list. You'll have to
allow me time to dig out my stuff from the gazillion boxes of books that I
have acting as pseudo-furniture in my apartment at the moment. Feel free
to write to me off the list.
