Costume and Textiles
Tired of sewing T-tunics or following someone else's pattern? Ready to take the next step and make your own custom pattern but don't know where to start? Do you want to make a sideless surcote "master" pattern and adapt it for the 13th, 14th or even 15th century? Do you want to make the 13th Cyclas? Then this class is for you! Participants will select a surcote "syle" from period iconography, take key measurements, and learn how to draft freehand or with helpful tools (triangles and French Curves). This is intended as a hands-on, pattern drafting "make and take" class with participants going home with a custom paper pattern for a sideless surcote/ Cyclas.
