Treadle Make Tuesday: Bernie's Vintage Shirt

Every Tuesday we share projects from Treadle Yard Goods employees (a.k.a. The Treadlettes) and our customers and fans!

Veteran sewist Bernie Graham made this classic shirt from a vintage pattern. It's full of great details! He sized this pattern up in our Resize Your Pattern class - watch for it in an upcoming schedule!  

Bernie used a red contrast fabric inside the cuffs and other hidden areas. 

Bright red buttons tie it all together!

  1. Nice work and a lovely shirt. Style-wise it reminds me of the vintage (late 60s - early 70s) Pendleton wool shirt I have that was my father's.

    1. The pattern was copyright 1943. I did, in fact, copy the collar and cuffs from one of my old Pendelton shirts.
