Making a T-Tunic

To make the Dagorhir experience exciting and believable, Dagorhir has minimal costume requirements. Costumes are called "garb" by Dagorhir participants. Minimal garb at one's first event must consist of at least a poncho tunic and leggings, as seen in this picture. Ultimately pride demands that you make better costuming, and the first step is making a basic T-Tunic. Step by step instructions are included below, courtesy of Scion d'Ur.


Step 1:

Start with a length of cloth that is twice as long as from your shoulders to your knees and as wide as the distance from wrist to wrist (or however long you want the sleeves to be).  Fold it in half with the side you want exposed on your tunic when it's finished on the inside of the fold.

 

Step 2:

Cut away the sections indicated to form the sleeves, torso and neck-hole and sew the material together as indicated in RED and hem along the lines in BLUE. I like to make the sleeves and body a little on the baggy side so I measure down about a foot from the top for the sleeves, and four to 5 inches wider than the torso of a really baggy t-shirt. You may also wish to put a tie-off cord through the sleeve cuff hem.

Step 3:

Turn the tunic inside out, and you're finished.

 

Now you're a walking fashion statement!
