Alright, it's really a pirate tunic, more than it is a gypsy tunic. We don't really admire pirates; we know they are actually horrible. I guess some of us (ie Strapping Young Lad) just like to dress like one.
I made this top very blousy. I usually make Strapping Young Lad's shirts a bit more rustic, but...
The other day, as Strapping Young Lad marched out of the house, he informed me that he was "goin' bear huntin'"... I noted that he was armed with only his knife.
And so I figured, a Fine Young Fellow that hunts bears with only a wooden knife (crafted for him by his Grandpa), can certainly wear a slightly blousy shirt in a very manly way, in the true pirate style. No sweat.
