This is a large, tabard-like tunic, consisting of two rectangles of material reaching from shoulders to the knees or mid-calf. It should have very wide, half-length sleeves and have a wide but simple neck opening. From the waist downwards it should have open sides.

It should be made from coloured linen, wool or silk, may be lined in silk or linen, and may be decorated with tablet weave or embroidery around the neck, arms and base.

It may have two bands of decoration or contrasting colour going vertically from base to base over the shoulders, spaced about 12" apart, and may have a central decoration motif on the front and/or back.
