18th Century

As what this Turkish culture site says, this is a "caftan with short sleeves associated with Mahmut I (1730-54)." It's a "thick satin with brackets of ivory satin triangle decorations". I am willing to wear this the way a wizard would, because the pattern is beautiful.

Yesterday I was very much interested with cloths/fabrics. I found out that the curtain I liked the most is not canvas, but calico. I noticed that some writers are very particular with what their characters wear, though it may not be helping some readers in picturing them because of their inadequate knowledge about damasks and seersuckers and garibaldis. It all started with this Joan Didion article.
