Pattern - (M) Authentic American Shirt Pattern
This colonial style shirt, square cut Authentic American Shirt, was a common shirt seen for the first two hundred years in our country. The pattern includes sizes Small (36) through size XX-Large (50)
By changing fabric and detail this shirt can go from a coarse workman’s or woodsman’s everyday shirt to a lacy evening accessory. Many mountain men wore this shirt with ruffles when they first entered the fur trade and frequently had their initials embroidered on a cuff. Gathers for fullness and gussets under the arms give this shirt added comfort and options include an ascot tie, ruffled stock and ruffled insert. Four extra inches may be added to the length for winter warmth.
