Thats really great, one of the better tutorials I've seen in a while

One thing that I use for applique is Heat and Bond, which is basically full sheets of seam a seam, that way if the item you are appliqueing is finicky or has a lot of strange curves you can fuse the entire piece of fabric to the garment, and then you don't have to worry about anything shifting

My wife, Sorcia, and I use the same stuff.

Has anyone worked with the temporary spray adhesive for doing applique? It's supposed to disappear after a couple of weeks (or washings, I suspect) and is used much like regular spray adhesive.

LOL, so here I am browsing this forum and I see the thread title and think "hey I should see what this ones about maybe it'll give me something to add to my tutorial"...... lol again.

Thanks for posting this Kyrain!

Here are a few others I've done (years old at this point):

Make a fitted Shield Cover:

Recessed Center Grip Punch shield:

There are more but mostly geared toward Amtgard Tech, I'm also starting a Plastidip entry on the Amtwikki:

I'd figured this method out on my own but when I saw your tutorial I started posting it in response to questions on all three major boards I visit. It's a good one.

I'm interested in seeing the different ways and different materials used in your inner tunics, both face character and generic. :knight:

Arrakis' link takes you to another site. Click "Applique Tunic" and download it. It's a PDF file and is very useful. Also shows up well on a Kindle Fire, if you're looking for portability without printing.

Also:

http://www.forest.gen.nz/Medieval/artic ... UNICS.HTML

This is seriously one of the easiest tunics that I've made. Its a period design, saves on wasted fabric, its incredibly simple to do the measurements for (4 measurements), and its all (except the neck hole) straight seams. Its also a VERY forgiving pattern, with no intricacies, and works well with most fabrics.

Please be aware that the little measurement chart that is included has been modified to make it a dress. Shortening the bottom hem to the knee-area (just above, knee, or just below, your preference) is the easiest modification. All of the dimensions in the cutting guide are based on those measurements.

Insets 3-8 can also be done in a different color to add a nice contrast.
