Poet's Shirt Pattern / Reenactment / Vintage Design / Men's sizes / Women's sizes included.


Folkwear #217 Poet's Shirt pattern. Men's and Women's sizes included. Printed 1982

This romantic shirt dates from the 1820s, when such poets as Byron, Shelley, and Keats wore their collars open in defiance of conventional fashion. The easy-sew garment is equally poetic for men or women and can be made with plain or ruffled collar and cuffs. Pattern includes historical lore and instructions for authentic detailing. This is a favorite for men's Medieval/Renaissance costume and contemporary wedding shirt.

This is one of a large group of Vintage patterns I acquired recently when an old shop was liquidated.. The envelope shows some signs of wear caused by age but the pattern is new and has never been used.
