I made this short-sleeved shirt from Butterick 3995, a vintage men’s shirt and pants pattern from 1957, for my partner Michael. The shirt has a back pleat, a back collar button (nice vintage detail), a button loop at the collar, and front facings rather than plackets. The collar is one piece, so there is no collar stand — a little easier. All in all, a great pattern!

I used a vintage printed cotton I found recently at the Chelsea Flea Market. The plastic buttons are also vintage.
