Pattern for a 19th C. men’s shirt. Around 1840 men’s dress coats were tailored closer to the body by the addition of a separately cut and formed underarm piece. The fitted shirt with set -in sleeves had less bulk than traditional square cut shirts with a dropped shoulder and would have been more comfortable under the new fashionably cut coat. Depending on your requirements, we suggest the use of dress studs instead of simple buttons.

Historical notes are included as well as instructions for making a cravat and tying a Gordian knot.

Multi-sized 85-135 cm (34-54″) chest.
