How to order #007: Two Mid-Nineteenth Century Shirts

#007 Two Mid-Nineteenth Century Shirts. $12.00 (US funds)

The square cut, drop-shouldered style with underarm gussets is the most common style of the first half of the 19th century.

The suggested fabrics are: Cotton sheeting for the body and a fine linen for the collars, cuffs and plaited fronts. You may also make the entire shirt of a cotton calico and the detachable collar out of a cotton or linen.

The two shirt styles are contained in one pattern package and are multi-sized 34 through 50 chest. Look at our National Standard size chart for your size. Chest sizes 34-40 require 3 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric; chest sizes 42-50 require 3-7/8 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric.

If making the shirts using white sheeting, order eight small, white utility China reproduction buttons for the shirt with the detachable collar and five white utility China reproduction buttons for the shirt with the set-in sleeves. If making the shirts using a calico fabric, consider purchasing matching calico buttons.
