Resolution isn't that good but on the off chance you have access to the

	This is not the pattern for that particular shirt but it's a

cutting layout from the Janet Arnold Waffen-und Kostumkunde article.

	I've always liked this painting because of the way the embroidery
on the inside and outside of the collar and the cuffs are all different
