Description

I used a vintage McCall’s pattern (6383) from 1978 to make a western shirt for my husband’s Christmas present. The yoke, front bands and cuff are cut on the bias to add visual interest. had a lot of sewing “firsts” with this little shirt. Since this was a gift I really wanted to take my time and do everything right. Flat-felled seams, cuff and sleeve placket, and pearl snaps were all attempted for the first time. More details and photos can be found in my blog DapperDuds

Material Notes

I used some soft orange plaid cotton flannel from Joann’s, white piping, and pearl snaps.

    Very well done. The piping’s a cool detail. I’m about to make my boyfriend a plaid flannel shirt, too, and I’m nervous about the packets and cuffs. We’ll see!

    Lucky man! My husband loves shirts like these too. I’ll have to track down that pattern.

      I have seen 2 other copies just at garage sales so I think it’s fairly plentiful. It came together fairly easy

    Great job! I hope to eventually make good on the shirt patterns I’ve bought for my husband too. :)

      It wasn’t very difficult at all, I ran into problems with the sleeve placket, but i’m still a novice. I’m sure yours would look great!
