I thought these marked images might be useful in looking at construction. What I'm calling a gusset above isn't the traditional triangle or diamond shape- it's more like a panel. I guess a gore? I dunno- it's similar to some of the methods we use for medieval tunics.




Would agree with the diagram you drew of the seams, and would like to and that verbiage should say that they are flat felled.

I would agree “panel” is a better term than gusset. I know when I read your suggestion I was going crazy thinking a triangle or similar was in the sleeve when I clearly couldn’t see it. Sad
I just cut the underarm area into a panel under the sleeve and attached it and that was how I translated it.

Anya, I agree on the drawing as well. Makes the seams at the shoulder and side much clearer. It’s so hard to tell with these things in the dark lighting.

Maybe simply describe it as a side panel?

Hello! I am starting this build and I already bought all my fabric based on the initial discussion here.

I just want to clarify things about the tunic fabric - will a suede or suede like material be required? Or would just a bottom weight cotton be ok?

During my interview with Michael Kaplan for Rebelthon he mentioned Raw Silk as one of the fabrics used for that scene. However, the Legion doesn't require people to use animal-based materials.

In light of the revelation about the raw silk, perhaps it would be worth specifying that it is a textured heavy fabric? That would open the door for higher texture cottons, raw silks, viscose noil, suede, etc, while still getting reasonably close to the look of the raw silk.
