That makes sense to me, thank you! I sure can't tell what the hell the sleeves and pants are supposed to be from the texture though. I haven't been able to find any fabrics with that linear dot stripe woven in, so I'm close to just slashing a normal shirt pattern apart into sections and putting a lace-up trim between each section, but that gives me second thoughts too. I have seen lace-on sleeves, at least, but not to that extent, and I haven't seen any larp stores sell clothes with striped fabric like that either.
I'm probably overthinking the whole thing. I figured the tabard would be the annoying part but I've finished it already lol.
