Twilight princess tunic pattern request

Hello! as the title implies could someone please post a pattern template for twilight princess link's tunic? The undershirt is a turtleneck so a turtleneck tshirt pattern would be heavily appreciated. Thank you so much

The type of pattern you are looking for is called a T tunic. Larpers and entry level living history groups use them all the time. A quick Google search of "t tunic pattern" should give you more than enough to get going. Also note that the TP Link has his tunic finished with bias tape around the edges, and the length is to mid thigh. Does that help?

Bias tape is essentially ribbons of fabric that are used as a finishing method on the raw edges of a peice of fabric to prevent it from fraying. Theoretically they are cut "on the bias" that is to say at a 45 degree angel from the weave of the fabric, but I have not noticed any difference in performance between bias tape cut on the bias and those that are simply made from scrap pieces of whatever fabric I am using. For example. Link's tunic seems to be made with bias tape from the same fabric as the tunic itself, so you could use the scrap fabric from the tunic to make the bias tape. For further information and guides on how to use this technique google "bias tape edge finish" that should get you the information you need.
