Arras Shirt


Pattern drawing based on a photograph of the garment, and may not be completely accurate

This was based on a photograph sent by "Liebaart" liebaart@tiscalinet.be to 75years@yahoogroups.com.  This shirt   was supposedly  one that was owned by Thomas Becket (1120-1170) and is now in the Cathedral of Arras. It is made from fine linen. The side gores have very small folds on their tops.
