Description

A few things to consider before you purchase one of our patterns

***All Revival Clothing Patterns, both digital and print book formats, are FINAL SALE and not eligible for exchange or refunds***

Please note: our 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.

For the Printed Version:

This comes in the form of a spiral bound book with instructions followed by the pattern pages. To use, you cut out the pattern pages and tape them together for a full size pattern. For the sized patterns, all sizes are nested together. If you want use more than one size, you will need to trace the individual size onto semi transparent paper, like tracing paper, and use that to cut out the fabric.

For the Digital Version:

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.

The ubiquitous tunic extends back into antiquity and was the common over garment of lord and peasant alike for centuries. Even as the nobility began adopting more elaborate clothing in the 14th century, the simple tunic remained in use. To complement the rest of our line, we’ve chosen to base our design on a specific, late 14th century example – the tunics so beautifully depicted in the illuminated hunt book of Gaston Phebus, Count of Foix. This full, pullover tunic has long, ample sleeves with narrow cuffs and a keyhole neckline. Depending on the wearer’s height, the tunic will fall between mid-thigh and knee-length.

Simple, comfortable and affordable, the tunic is an ideal garment for wearing around camp, when you’re out and about during the day, or as an introductory way to begin sprucing up your wardrobe. Wear it with chausses, braies and one of our three styles of hood, and you’ll be surprised at how quickly it dresses up.

    Great tunic for fighting! There’s plenty of room for chainmail and elbow pads under the finished garment.
