    Linen pillow ticking for shirt?

    Quick buckskin leggings question

    I plan on making my first buckskin leggings out of german tan buckskin. Crazy crow sells a 12-14sf hide as their smallest size of the natural colored german tan.

    Knives with suspenders?

    Yep your right, the button X back kind. I believe what your discribing is the same mode of carry for knives as Grizzly Adams wore on the show. NWT Woodsman

    A question of pants

    Also, if you do get some trousers, stay away from cotton if your going to be doing any work or trekking in them.

    A question of pants

    Who, when and where??? Those are the questions you should ask yourself first. Mid 18th century to early 19th century are nothing alike in clothing. Also I believe rendevouse today accept 1660s-1840. One of the most forgiveable and long streching pants would be a simple ankle length narrow fall...

    Instead of staining the osnaburg shirt, I stained some etra buckskin that I had with coffee, and it turned out great! Made it into a new smaller possibles bag.
