A Simple Bulgarian Tunic

This is a simple medieval tunic based on a couple of burial site garments. It is a part of a soldier’s outfit from the time of the Second Bulgarian Tsardom ( XII-th – XIV-th centuries ). There is barely anything unusual to it except he buttons and the neck slit. It’s made of linen, and it’s mostly machine made. It’s a great thing to wear during the summer heatwave on the Balkans. We’ve tested our summer garments plenty of times and have come up with the conclusion that linen is the most suitable material for this type of clothes.

Here are some photos of the tunic, taken during our recent visit to Sigishoara, Romania.

It is to be noted, that the tunic has the following bonuses:

+5 to attractiveness
+3 to look like a boss

Western European Woolen tunic – XI-XIVth centuries

Turns out, quite a lot of our post recently seem to be based on the ever-present Mac-bible. This one will be no-exception.  As I am working towards a reconstruction of a low-to-mid level knight in the time frame 1150-1250, this is just another element of it.
The tunic is made from 100% wool, machine-stitched and finished by hand.
As one can see from the pictures it really goes well with the red hood, so my next task (after i finish my winter hosen – stay tuned) will be to make an apropriate hood to go with this earlier reconstruction.

It will also serve as a base for my wizard’s personna for larping. How cool is that?
Also sorry for the bad quality of some of the pictures.


Linen Tunic XII-XIIIth Century

And another tunic. This one is completely hand-made, from 100% linen, with cotton threads.
I based it on a pattern of an Egyptian shirt from the early XIII-th. century(I think)
It turned a bit tighter than I expected, but nonetheless it’s very comfortable, especially during the summer.


Woolen Tunic XII-XIV Century

 A simple XII-XIV century tunic. It is based mainly on pictorial sources
Material: 100% wool, with cotton threads
It is completely handmade.
