Description

I made this lightweight summer shirt from Butterick 4712, a vintage Seventies mens shirt pattern. It has long sleeves with sleeve plackets, side vents, and a collar stand and no collar. Perfect for hot summer days when I want to look cool but not too casual. A nice complement to my recently-completed striped cotton pants.

More about these on my blog, Male Pattern Boldness. Malepatternboldness.blogspot.com

Material Notes

I used a very lightweight, slightly transparent cotton weave I found in the Garment District in NYC.

    dear peter! i am always so amazed about the way you finish your things. this project again looks just light and easy and fab. but i am sure not only me but all the others here at the site know, how difficult things like that are, to look that perfect and professional in the end!
