Rugged but refined, this 1940s-inspired shirt from BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern works as well for the edgy urbanite as it does for a laid-back country boy. The classic fit makes it a perfect choice for both workdays and movie nights, while the military-style pockets render it both stylish and practical. Make it short-sleeved for a summer staple, sew it in denim or men’s shirting, or use contrasting fabric for the pockets, like plaid or polka dot.
2 1/2 yards (2.3m) main fabric, 55" (139.5cm) wide
Lightweight fusible interfacing
16 buttons, 1/2" (13mm) in diameter
