Scrolling through past posts to see if your question has already been asked and answered. Postings are in chronological order of the date when the topic was first posted. You can also use the SEARCH function to look for past posts about your question.

If you don't see your question addressed, or if you have additional questions, post a New Topic rather than replying to an existing topic.

Try looking for "ruana" which is a South American stole that is like a large rectangle with a slit starting half-way down the length of the rectangle. This will give you the front opening -- the sides are opened but you could always sew it closed or tack the bottoms closed. Ruana's are generally longer than waist length but you could adjust the length to recreate a tabard.
