A few things to consider before you purchase one of our digital patterns
Please note: our digital patterns are adapted from our original, industrial grade production patterns so they contain only the minimal markings used by professional production sewers and are intended for intermediate and advanced sewers. The instructions are a basic guide and written with the intent that the user understands patterns and clothing construction terminology and techniques. That said, we have used these patterns for many years in actual production, so they are vetted in terms of sizing and accuracy.
You will need access to Adobe Acrobat Reader version X or later in order to open the file and a printer.
In addition, in order to make large format patterns available to the home sewer, the patterns have been converted to a ’tiled’ .pdf which means, you will print many individual 8.5″ x 11″ pages and tape them together to make the full sized pattern.
- After you purchase the pattern, you will receive an confirmation email with a link to download an encrypted .PDF, that includes instructions and the pattern itself. Thefiles may only be downloaded once. Please make sure we have the correct email with your order and we are on your spam whitelist – we cannot resend the email as it contains a unique link for you to use.
- Within a business day(M-F) we will send you a confirmation email with the password to open the document
- All Digital Revival Clothing products, including patterns, are FINAL SALE and not eligible for exchange, discounts or refunds
A note about sharing – PLEASE DON’T SHARE THESE FILES, copy the pattern or use it to produce items for sale. We are a small company, hoping to share our experience and ideas with you, in order to help you make beautiful, authentic, well-fitting medieval clothing. This pattern is intended for personal use by a single customer and we have priced it accordingly. Abuse of the user agreement will negatively affect our ability to continue to provide this service. We have spent a couple decades researching and perfecting our patterns and we are trusting you to use them in the spirit they are intended. So please, honor our single user policy and help us continue to serve the greater re-enactment community.
If you already own one of our gambesons and please note, the sizing on the patterns is different than our ready made gambeson. This is a consequence of digitizing the pattern so that we could make it available to you.
Note: Sizing on our 14th century gambeson is judged by waist size because the large grande assiette armhole also adds to the ease of fit through widest part of the chest. It is meant to fit snugly around waist and torso with a bit of ease for ease of movement though shuolders an upper back.
|Size||Max. Waist Measurement||Approx. Max Chest Measurement|
