13th Century Sleeveless Surcote
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.
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.
