Men's Eastern European Tunic Shirt

Men's Eastern European Tunic Shirt

My husband and I are still messing around with our SCA personas.  This year we are leaning towards eastern european because we built a vardo (gypsy wagon) to take to events.

I did a little research, and pulled in some details from the many opera's I have worked on that have been staged in similar styles and came up with a simple men's tunic style shirt.  Probably it should have much more embriodery on it to be historical, but I wanted something I could cut out, sew together and throw in the washing machine.  Sort of modern wash and wear care in a historical garment.

This is what I came up with.  The cut is based on historical references but I made it out of linen to blend in with our house old (which seems to dress almost exclusivly in linen).  The center front placket is offset and has a self fabric tie.

Thanks for looking!  Be sure to check out the vardo too.
