|Being worn without an outer layer--I was rather cold...|
For the first entry this year, I have a simple undertunic. Those who know me, know that I tend to play in early medieval Northern Europe, so this was a much needed addition to my wardrobe (all my old undertunics died. Horribly). I threw it together a few days before an event, once I remembered that I would need a new one, and did the hand finishing (sewing down the yoke and cuffs) in the car on the way to the event, as well as late that night while partying.
The pattern is simple—two body pieces seamed at the shoulders (it would have been one long one, but I wanted the stripes running lengthwise on the garment), two sets of gores, and two trapezoidal sleeves. The gores were made approximately as wide and long as I could. I may stitch rip, then inset gussets in the underarm at some point in the future.
