Thanks Actually, I didnt' use the McCalls pattern for my second tunic. I did for my first one though, but I found it too baggy. I think it was a new look pattern that I ended up using, and I changed the sleeve shape, made the sleeve holes bigger, and made it longer. It was a ladies pattern for one of those cross over tops. It gave a much better fit. The pants started off as a McCalls pattern, but I made them a lot more fitted, and they don't resemble the pattern anymore.
You're working on an Aragorn costume? Cool Best of luck with that. I hope it's going well

This is no mere ranger. His costume gets more and more elaborate as time goes on.
I've also done a Legolas but I plan on revamping it in future to get the detailing more accurate and the hair to look like it's actually growing out of my scalp as apposed to the obvious wig. I would appreciate any insight you have on how you got the silvery pattern on the jerkin.
By the way phoenix, the initial pattern you used to start your robes with that crossover thing sounds exactly like the type of start we're going to use for a character on the Indie production we're putting together.
The trick is that the crossover style will stay as is to be wrapped under the bust yet the shoulders will still have the traditional shape to them. Tough to pull off but very unique.
Anyways I haven't posted in here yet and I noticed my fight choreographer had so I better get in gear.
