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.

One thing I love to do is surface design and silk painting.  I took classes in collage and really loved marblizing fabrics.  I some how thought I would get to do more surface design in my carreer.  I guess it didnt happen because of my working as a draper at the opera.  In a really big well organized shop like SF Opera, all the surface design, painting and dying is handled by a specialist.  If I had spent more of my carrer working in smaller shops, I probably would have been able to use those skills more.
