Re: caftan manuals & beer debts
- I too apologize for sending this listwide, but 'dak's server appears to be
playing hide and seek on the network.
I recently found the perfect fabric for a kaftan, and would love any tips or
suggestions you can throw my way. Email is fine, with or without
attachments as available, or if you want to send something snailmail, my

I haven't really made a kaftan yet, just a chuga, which I guess is somewhat
similar, but any help at all you can offer would be greatly appreciated!
The basic patterns you sent me a while back are being put to good use as I
start some Russian garb for my wife. I'll convert her from a good
upstanding Anglo-Saxon into a Slav yet. ;-)
You asked a while back if I had a copy of Giliarovskaia, and unfortunately
I did not at the time. Looks like I'll be obtaining a copy of it soon,
though (thanks Ilyana! :-). Did you ever get ahold of this, or are you still
devoid? If the latter, I'd be more than willing to run off an extra copy
for you when I make mine and ship it off your way, just give the word (and
Otherwise, just let me know how much the copying/shipping comes to, and
I'll more than happily reimburse.

- Dear Caftan Guy,
I am totally bummed to hear that you are not going to be at
Pennsic. His Majesty (as of the 10th) will be disappointed also. Oh
well, Everyone else will be at "Sergei's Party", RIGHT!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Congrats on the honeymoon thing. I know how important that can be.
Actually, I wish I knew. Single and all I can empathize at least.
Anyway, you don't have to send beer with anyone. I would appreciate any
patterns you have available. If you have already paid the rent give me
a holler when you are ready to send patterns since it seems everybody
wants what you got, big guy. (He, he) Anyway, I hope this isn't too
late. I has the West/An Tir War to go to. There will be a report on
that tomorrow. Yes you can ALL have something to read that may have to
do a little bit with the SCA instead of beer and stuff. All in all, I
am really going to miss seeing you there. (Major Bummer, DUDE!!!!!!)
I hope to see the rest of you there at whichever party it turns out to

- I know that this is a bit late already, I've been away for a while.
But...could I possibly get a copy of the caftan information? I am a heat
sick Hungarian in the far south regions of Meridies and have decided that a
nice loose caftan is just what I need for summer wear (I need to protect my
burn-prone skin). So far, all that I've been able to find is a written
description and some mongolian and persian examples to extrapolate from. I
would TRUELY appreciate any information. If it is going to involve any kind
of copy costs or postage I will more than happily pay them.
New in Service,
- And when would your party be? Hmmm?
