So, why the dickie instead of a full brown under tunic? Because apparently the over tunic material is so thin, an all brown inner tunic would show through the body of the outer tunic. So they only put the brown where it needed to be, where it would be covered by the lining of the sleeves and the binding on the over tunic, and made the rest of the shirt the same color as the outer tunic. A little movie magic!
So, now the question is, do I make a dickie for my inner tunic? Or do a make a full tunic for my inner tunic?
