Make a basic tunic No gore insets and very simple to construct. Both the sleeved and sleeveless version can be made from the same pattern. Taking the time creating this pattern from scratch will result in a garment that will be a perfectly tailored fit to your body. Layer the sleeveless over the sleeved version or use as a plain undergarment. "I recommend using 5.3 oz 100% linen or 100% cotton. I use 100% linen because I use these tunics during Pennsic. Linen breathes and looks period...."
