Shirt of St. Louise

This tunic, or shirt, could have belonged to St. Ludwig of 13th century, and is currently located in Notre Dame, Paris. This rather long tunic (approximately down to the knees) is not very well preserved: it is missing the left sleeve and the lower right quarter covering the front of the right thigh. The present pattern is drawn after the one designed by Dorothy K. Burningham, except we matched the length of the inserted triangular pieces to the length of the overal garment. Because the proper pattern measurements have never been taken from the extant garment, the pattern on the picture represents our best guess.
