Croatian Shirt

I have decided to make the Croatian Shirt from the Folkwear pattern, #117. I bought the pattern in 1978 and have made it at least three times. I just love it. It has a shaped arms-eye in the front and a straight back piece. The special cuff, collar, and tuck details make this a fun shirt to sew and wear. The pattern was taken from an actual folk shirt obtained in Romania. So the style could have been worn in Transylvania, right? The documentation that comes with the pattern states that after much research it was decided the tucking on the shirt makes it a Croatian folk shirt rather than a Romanian one.
