Madder dyed sleeveless surcote worn over a green tweed woollen tunic with buttoned sleeves. All
visible seams are handsewn.
Image from the Codex Manesse.
The pattern I used for the surcote can be I found in The Medieval Tailor's Assistant written by Sarah Thursfield
on page 124.
This sleeveless overdress is also know as a cyclas or sukenie.
Costume made in 2006.
An alternative and maybe more authentic pattern for the surcote is the pattern for
St. Birgitta's Gown
(c1330s) which can be found on the website Some Clothing of the Middle Ages.
