Alexandra Reynolds 1940s costume EvaDress Patterns Pattern Tour Simplicity Vintage Patterns

In a sort of Advents-Kalendar way, I will post 'red' for each day of December through Christmas and link the image as closely as possible to EvaDress Patterns (in pattern tour form) available in the shop!
1940's Western Shirt
Sew the look using our 1949 Western Shirt pattern, now in multiple sizes:
1949 Western Shirt

Originally by Simplicity, this 9-piece pattern is for 'The front-buttoning shirt with a shaped shoulder yoke in front and back, convertible collar and front band.  The long sleeves, fastened with three buttons at the lower edge, have high shaped cuffs.  In Style I, the yoke and cuffs are of contrasting fabric.  Bound buttonhole pockets finished with arrowhead tacks are featured.  Contrasting piping outlines the front band, collar, yoke shoulder seams and cuffs.  Style II is embroidered with a leaf and horse’s head motif and overcasting with embroidery thread or crewel wool replaces the contrasting piping of Style I.' 

The embroidery motifs are provided as black and white prints.  One should transfer the designs to the fabric by going over with a stylus using a wax-free transfer paper such as Saral.
