Tunics' Shop Announcement

Viking, Medieval or Fantasy; SCA, Re-enactor, Ren Faire player, Cosplay or LARP - Welcome to TUNICS, a shop with a wide selection of handcrafted tunics in a variety of fabrics, colours and trims. The shop listings only show some of the possibilities. Since everything is handmade by me, making changes is easy! My favorite work is making a customer’s vision come to life. And you’ll also be getting a comfortable and durable garment that you’ll enjoy wearing. Convo me and let’s start working on a custom tunic just for you!

My tunic pattern is based on the Birka (Sweden) find, dated to the 9th -10th century. Key features are under-arm gussets and triangular gores sewn into the sides. Both features add room for movement and make for a more comfortable garment. I’ve eliminated the gussets and use a wider, curved shoulder. I still use the gores on the sides. It not only makes it easier to move around, but adds a slight flare at the bottom hem that gives it a better look.

I’m in the process of dividing the shop into Sections so you can quickly find particular styles or fabrics based on your needs. I make most of my tunics in linen or wool, natural fabrics in wide-spread use throughout history. I also use cotton and cotton blends when needed. Whatever the fabric though, I make sure that it’s good quality and feels right. Yep, I field-test everything! I finish by serging all seams with colour-matched (with rare exceptions) thread.

Browse my listings and add something nice for yourself to your shopping cart. I ship USPS Priority Mail on most items (2-3 business days). Need it fast? Go to the “Ready to Ship” section, it’ll go out as soon as the Post Office opens.

Email me with any questions, I’m always happy to help.
Cheers!
Jerry
