Description
"In this class two-part class you will pattern and construct a fitted linen armor under shirt, suitable for wearing in conjunction with any over-shirt for the purpose of SCA Rapier Combat. No sewing experience required! In Part I (Patterning), you will create a body pattern via the ‘Duct-Tape’ shirt method, and use this pattern to cut-out and prepare your armor for sewing. In Part II (Construction), you will sew your pattern pieces. Students will leave this class with a Rapier-legal under-shirt, and a custom body pattern. Cost of $20 dollars includes linen material, zipper, duct tape, and all other construction materials. Students should bring an old T-Shirt to sacrifice in creation of the body pattern, but limited extras will also be available day-of. Lady students are encouraged bring rapier chest protection to ensure proper fit Materials will be available for pre-registered students. Pre-registered students wishing to bring their own materials are welcome, but should contact the instructor prior to the class to ensure they will pass the armor requirements. Audits for Part I are welcome, and encouraged to bring a T-Shirt and Duct Tape to create a body pattern. Part I is a Pre-Req. to Part II"
