Description

Despite the title and the season, this is not a Hallowe’en costume shirt. This is made from McCall’s 7123, an out-of-print and extremely over-sized pattern from the 80s or early 90s. With a couple of modifications, most notably a full button placket and a slight (like 2" off each side) reduction of the shoulder width, this is a perfect “poet shirt” (or pirate shirt) pattern. This is also the third time I’ve made it for my husband, and he wears the other two to death. He was wearing this one before I could even get the buttons on, so I’d say it’s a winner, too.
