Our upcoming Quest article is "Garb For Children", with Guest Editor Chele Martines | Sabine de Rouen.

Sometimes garbing SCA children is easy: He's outgrown his tunic since last summer, and the event is in two days: you throw one of yours over his head, and blouse it over the belt. Sometimes it isn't: Your five-year-old niece is day-tripping to her first war, she hasn't a thing to wear, your youngest is 10 and there's nothing the right size in the loaner closet. What then? What costume designs work for kids who are hard on their clothes and seem to change sizes with the seasons? How does sewing for children differ from sewing for adults – or does it?

Do you have costuming wisdom and wizardry to share? Send your advice (of approximately 200 words) to by November 7, and it may be included in the First Quarter 2015 issue of Tournaments Illuminated. If you'd like to share a photo of your great idea, write for specs.
