Yeah. You can easily do this. Photoshopping pattern now. I should have the walkthrough up for you probably in the next few hours. I'll text to you let you know when it's live.

Okay...Here it is:



And how to do it.

First, measurements:

A = Around the widest part of your chest. Divide that by 2, and add 4" for ease and seams.
B = Length from shoulders to just below your knee. Add 3".
C= A x 2.



Draw and cut it out as above. If you want it one color, you're pretty much done. But for counterchanged, the easiest way to do it is to make 2 tabards, one of each color, keep them folded and cut as shown:



The vertical line will be from the center point of A to the center of C. It should match up. The horizontal line will be the distance from your shoulder to your WAIST on B. Not your hips, not that invisible line across your ass where you sag your pants, no, this is where you will be wearing your belt, and for most LARPs and the SCA, thats your goddamn natural waist.

Then after you have those tabards cut, you will place the blocks of squares as you see fit with the others. First you will sew the front and back torso pieces, and cut the neckline out of the front piece, or just leave parts unsewn at the seams, this is the most period way to do it. So it will be more like slits. Hem those, and then sew the shoulder seams together.

After that you need to decide if you're going to leave the sides open or sew them shut. Do so as you wish. Here's a drawing of a sideview that I did where I left the lower portions free and only sewed a bit below the arm opening:



This is YOUR CALL. However, make sure you leave the front and back pieces partially open from the bottom to approx. mid thigh, or you're NOT going to be able to move.



And that's all there really is to it. Hem and trim as desired. I'd actually recommend doing the hemming and the trimming on both the bottom AND the sides before sewing it up when it still looks like the first figure I made.

I know this is gonna sound bitchy, but...

Unless you made the helmet, isn't that outfit just a red bedsheet with a hole in it?

Cumberland of Ravenholt, Evendarr? Nah. Different game (Madrigal). We're a mercenary company. Colors were chosen by vote.

Do I get any bragging credits if I mention that, when I was still involved w/ NERO, my in-game sister was the one who obliterated Duke Ravenhurst?

I wish. It's a 5 panel velveteen cloak. The fabric for the outer robe alone is 8 yards and cost me close to $80. The under robe is a tunic which I posted earlier in this fread.
