After having to make 26 various tabards for a Renaissance Dinner, I realized how useful they can be, since they cover your clothes and are easy to make and wear. Short abards were worn in Medieval and Renaissance times by pages and servers, and long, elaborate ones were worn by knights over their armor. They are also used today in the kitchen, at supermarkets, and in toolsheds. Here is a simple, easy way to make a useful tabard.
Measure how long you want the tabard to be (add 6" if you want pockets), and buy that length.
Material should not be a knit or otherwise drapey fabric.
Depending on what the tabard is used for, you may want heavier or lighter fabric.
