    1950s Versatile Men's Shirt Pattern

    A super versatile shirt that is bound to catch anyone's eye when made in any of the featured styles. This perfect men's sports shirt is illustrated in three styles, view A featuring a Mandarin, or Nehru, style band-only collar with short sleeves, waist tabs and a tabbed chest pocket. Views B and C change it up with a spread collar, with view B showing off long cuffed sleeves too. But why not add your own spin on it? How about long sleeves and a Mandarin collar? Or maybe remove the tabs from the waist and pocket for a more relaxed style? The small details of this shirt make it perfect to really make it your own unique piece!

    Offered here as: Digital Download (how to print and assemble). This pattern is also available as a Paper Pattern.
