      Dodds asserts that the tunic is of "wholly Muslim manufacture",
      though I don't know what she's basing that on. I do know, however,
      that when I make tunics for myself based on the same proportions and
      cut, I end up with a garment which looks remarkably like the
      miniatures from the 13th century. For instance, the brocaded card
      weaving on the shoulder seams actually falls at the upper arm - the
      exact same place where tiraz are shown in the Bayad wa Riyad, the
      Cantigas de Santa Maria, and the Book of Games.
