Deciding what to wear to an SCA event can be a challenge, especially since much of our medieval clothing (garb) is handmade! Many of our members began with no sewing experience at all, so if that sounds like you, you’re in good company. Many versatile pieces are fairly simple to make, especially with good instruction and a little help from your new friends.

Each Monday, we hold Open Arts and Sciences time, from 7:00-9:00 pm, at West Wind Unitarian Church, 1309 W Boyd, Norman, OK 73069. Feel free to drop in and ask people for assistance with sewing your garb. You will find many friendly and helpful people there who can get you started.

Classes are held periodically, and we can usually put one together quickly, so don’t hesitate to request one either through the Hospitaler or the Minister of Arts and Sciences!

There are also numerous resources available online that you may find helpful, depending on your sewing experience level.

Rosalie’s Medieval Woman. Rosalie Gilbert has several tutorials on the construction of simple garb for women. If you have some free time, read through her articles on topics of interest to people with female personas in the SCA.

Briana’s Clothing Page contains tutorials and numerous links to other costuming sites.

ForwardIntothePast. This is a brief, downloadable pamphlet from the SCA with useful information and an overview of getting started with your garb.
