A basic shirt pattern suitable for both military and civilian wear extending from the early 1800’s—1900.   The pattern is categorized into three styles, but the necklines and collar options can be mixed and matched. The three styles are:

A) Military Standard Issue Shirt: a loose pullover shirt, with a fold-over collar, single button at the keyhole neckline and tapered sleeves.
B) The Blockade Shirt: Based on the thousands of shirts that were provided by England, to the North and South before and during the War. It was called the blockade shirt because many were smuggled through the Federal Blockade. This is a loose pullover shirt with a single button front opening with a narrow facing and a narrow band collar and cuffs.
C) The Placket Shirt: 3 – 4 button front placket opening characterizes this pullover shirt, which can have either a fold over or a banded collar. Most children’s shirts were made using this style.

The necklines include a keyhole opening, a bound opening and the standard placket. Both a banded and a fold-over collar are included.
Because this shirt is cut using rectangles this pattern can be used to make a shirt for a 2-year-old child or a 300-pound man. A truly “all sizes in one” pattern.

This listing is for a DIGITAL DOWNLOAD pattern and not a finished garment. A hardcopy pattern is available.
