Select the desired fabric color.Outerwear ancient Romans could be white, cream, purple, blue, or striped.Broad bands were senators, narrow - from riders.In most cases, the toga was made of fine wool.But for the role-playing game, you can do it from a few sheets.It is even better, because the width of the sheet corresponds approximately to double the size
Remove measurements.You need to know the distance from the neck to the floor and waist circumference.Label them as L1 and L2.Patterns such a large product hardly worth doing, but the calculations are needed.7. Divide the L1 in Toga, of course, can be done in the form of a long strip, without any cuts and fillets.But classical Roman dress or short edges are beveled at the corners, or rounded.Calculate the required width of a piece of cloth.It is approximately 2,1L1.If to be precise, then H = 2L1 + 5 / 56L1.
Calculate the total length.It is Lobsch = L1 + 3 / 7L1.Sew the available lengths of cloth in one piece.Use a clothesline better seam.He said no, because the toga laid folds.
Calculate the length of the upper straight edge and bevel upper corners.Lverh = 6 / 7L1.Accordingly, on each end will need to retreat to a distance (Lobsch-Lverh) / 2.Calculate bevel angles on the short slice.Divide L1 in 28 and multiply by 27. Mark this segment as the L3.Put L3 from the top on both sides.Connect the dots skew straight lines.
Calculate the bottom corners.The length of the straight portion of the bottom is 5 / 7L1.To determine the length of ramps, subtract from the total length of the bottom and divide by 2. To determine the height of the bevel, subtract from the total width of the fabric value L3 and also divide the resulting yardstick by 2. Put the yardstick from the top of the two lower corners up.Connect the dots straight bevels.Cut off all the angles.
treat overlock edges.You can sew along the edge of the braid in tone, contrast, or gold.Toga get pretty heavy, so it is best to wear with the assistant.
for role-playing classic tailoring need not comply.Find a piece of fabric the length of 6 m and a width of about 1.8 m. Width of a coat on sale almost does not occur, so stitch together multiple sheets.In this short cuts can be left straight.Similarly as in the first case, the process the edges, where there is no fringe overlocking.
clothes ready, now we need to put it right.Under the mantle of the ancient Romans wore a tunic.It is a long shirt.At the noble citizens tunic reached to the knee.Short was among the centurions, and long considered women's clothing.In fact, the tunic is a bag with a cut to the head.It can also sew from sheets sostrochiv on the sides of the neck and processed.
Put a toga.Divide a piece of fabric about 3 parts in width, grab the top and 1/3 nabroste on the left shoulder, arm folds closed.Edge clothes while hanging almost to the floor, but does not touch it.Ask an assistant to pull the fabric on the back and pass under the right arm.At the level of the hip she should go back pleats.Stretch fabric across the chest and again perebroste over his left shoulder.
