    so what do you think of this pattern ? im going to try it in a few days, i just have to wait for the leather to arrive (i hate lazy people selling things on ebay ....).
    i`ll tell you if that one can be used for an aragorn jerkin when im finished !

    One pattern that I know alot of costumers are using is this one...
    Vogue 7412.

    With these adaptaions....
    Vogue 7412 (Women's Mandarin Tunics) Use view A for Strider's duster or jerkin; adapt the collars and the length; and remember to slit the center back up to the waist (sides are already slit). Be careful with this as the pattern uses no CB seam, you may have to create one if you are using leather. While this pattern has no darts or other "feminine shaping" and so should work also for men.

    Well, I basically improvised. I found a vest at Goodwill with a suede front. I replaced the buttons with leather strips. It's obviously not long enough, and not quite the right shape, but it works for me.
