This piece also belongs to the collection of Walter Massey, and is
probably from 10-12th century Egypt. The shirt was made of linen and
bordered with silk around the neck. The pattern was cut in one piece,
without any shoulder seams, and was very close-fitted to the body,
especially around the waist-line. The sleeves were made from the
leftovers of the fabric, and then attached to the body of the shirt.
