Pattern - (B) Boy's Authentic American Shirt
This colonial period shirt is designed for boys and may be made in coarse linen, wool or cotton for a woodsman’s or workingman’s look, or in fine linen or cotton for “city” or “Sunday best.”
The Pattern features square cut shoulders, gussets under the arms and tucks for fullness that were characteristic of shirts worn in the first 200 years of our country’s history.
This basic American Shirt has a ruffled cuff and besides the plain collar has three necktie options which may be worn with the basic shirt. An ascot tie, ruffled stock and ruffled insert can make this Shirt Pattern cover several time periods and locals.
