Alcega: Men’s Jerkin Pattern

Alcega's jerkin of wool cloth. This takes 50 inches of 66-inch wide fabric. Note that the only real difference between this garment and Alcega's cassock is the separate cut of the skirt in back. Because of this, it is often difficult to tell the difference in portraits unless you see the back of the subject. Village scenes are particularly useful for this.Alcega’s jerkin of wool cloth.

Jerkin from Alcega, Cut to his exact proportions, deep peascod in place. For stouter men, I use less padding in the peascod, but keep in mind, that the peascod shape is NOT the same as a fat tummy. The proportions are specific and intentional. Peascods look better on a slimmer guy.
