I need a good, postable, tutorial for making Viking tunics. The knee length kind with the added triangular pannels. I'm starting a hisoriacly accurate viking group for another game and have to be able to post instructions for how to make the propere tunic.
Can anyone help me out?
Thanks

This is the one I've seen posted before and could probably be modified to be longer or shorter fairly easily.

Sadly, it isn't a tutorial, but a list of various extant pieces and a speculation as to how they were pieced. http://www.personal.utulsa.edu/~marc-ca ... khome.html I know it isn't exactly what you want though, but I hope it is useful to someone.

Derian, I've collected a pretty solid list of common garb links for Belegarth on our site if it'd be helpful.

Honestly, Alric's Bocksten tunic tutorial should be sticky linked here. It's just a really, really good tutorial for a really, really useful piece of garb.

Having read the above link for the viking (boksten) tunic, and being something of a sewing type, i have the following observations.

1. you can adjust the length of the tunic, simply by measuring to a different point, and shortening this one to just above the knee allows long legged type a little extra movement space when covering ground.

2. the sleeve measurements will likely be a little bit large to many people. a good alternative is to measure your arms circumference just at the shoulder, and add 4 inches, then measure the circumference of your arm at the point you want the sleeve to end, and add 1-3 inches (depending on how much droop you want on your sleeve.

3. If you choose to shorten the tunic, you may do well to make the gores a little smaller. Subtract 2-3 inches from the high of the gore when you measure it to keep the relative flow of the tunic, s that your not dealing with a hoop skirt at the waist.

Your point two is a good observation; the sleeves on the tunic produced by that tutorial are very baggy indeed.

On the other hand, I'm not sure what you mean by "extra movement space". With the gores, even if you only use the side gores and omit the front and back gores, the skirt of the tunic is plenty big for full-length running strides, let alone the shorter steps a fighter uses in combat, plus the long skirt is essential to the look of "Viking" and 11-13th Century garb. Too, the gores in most medieval tunics started between the bellybutton and the armpits in order to get that tight-at-the-ribs, flared-at-the-skirt look they fancied.

Another thing in that tunic tutorial that needs updated is the recommended armpit gusset size; 10" square is enormous! 5" is more reasonable.

Here is one that I personally love. While it doesn't have the gores or gussets, it is extremely easy to sew and still produces a good looking tunic. In addition it is easily modified to make different sleeves, change the lengths of the sleeves, make without sleeves, make longer, shorter, or turn into an underdress.

Thanks for the tips. I made a tunic for my wife based on that pattern, and it ended up waaaay too baggy on her. I'll drop the gusset size to 5" on the next iteration.
