By happenstance, one of the first pictures of a period ccs piece I ever
found was a boy's shirt from the V&S.  15th c., I think, or perhaps earlier,
with strapwork and columbine leaves and flowers, and some geometric motifs,
on non-even weave fabric.  Now that you mention it, I have cannot recall
other English examples on clothing.
