Knights' Tunics

My boys were riding on cloud nine the entire week I was making these. It seemed that every minute they were begging me to keep working on their costumes.

The pattern (simplicity 5520) is essentially a long-sleeved t-shirt with embellishments. The hood does not attach. I used white jersey for the tunic, silvery sparkly poly/rayon jersey for the "chain mail" and felt for the emblem and dagging. There is also gold braid (gimp) at the hem and armholes. I made them a little big so they'd be able to wear them for a while 0r put them over their clothes.
Actions shots with the wooden swords and shields hubby made the boys for Christmas. Homemade entertainment through and through!
