Description

This shirt was made for my hubby out of a vintage year 1956 pattern, Butterick #7673. It has a neat and very different “two button horizontal closing” which opens up the collar at the neck to allow it over the head. Surprisingly, for my part in making it, hubby’s shirt was so easy to make and required very little fabric (less than two yards) – on his end he loves the soft madras cotton, the subtle details, and comfy fit.

    You’re right this is so different but It suits him so well. Seems fitting that the previous owner was a Marjorie too!!
