    1950s Men's Versatile Nehru Sports Shirt

    A super versatile shirt that is bound to catch anyone's eye when made in any of the featured styles but the small details of this shirt make it ideal to really make it your own unique piece! The 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? 

    Offered here as: Paper Pattern. This pattern is also available as a PDF download.
