New York, United...
This is a linen shirt I made using a Butterick 4712, a vintage Seventies men’s shirt pattern that’s a TNT (tried and true) pattern for me. I used a turquoise blue border print I bought at Fabrics for Less on 39th St. in the Garment District in NYC. It’s modeled here by my partner Michael, the recipient of the shirt.
You can read more about the shirt on my blog, Male Pattern Boldness:
I used 2 yards of the linen fabric, a 60" bolt, and there was a lot left over (though I needed that much to include the border all around the bottom of the shirt). The buttons are vintage plastic shirt buttons. I used weft-weight woven interfacing from Steinlauf & Stoller in the outer collar and outer collar band, and front button plackets.
