Perfect Patterns Style 142|
Squire: Young knight in training traditionally
served as a body servant to an older established
knight to care for his clothing and armor, and to be taught his fighting methods.
This is a medieval costume
consisting of six basic pieces: a long sleeve
back opening chain mail hauberk (shirt) and
coif (hood), breeks (pants) that are full to the
knee and tight to the ankle, two different tabards (long vest),
belt, and bracers (wrist guards). 14 pattern pieces.
Traditionally the breeks (pants) are tightened below the knee with lacings (cross-garters) but I have taken design liberties to accomodate the boots.
The boot pattern is available to you in Perfect Patterns Style 143. They are fairly easy to make using ultra-suede and my detailed instructions.
For those of you purchasing the pattern in PDF format, an extra pattern page will be included with the tabard emblems on it. Special instructions for printing the emblems that will make the emblem very easy to apply will be included in the instruction sheet.
