Item details

McCall's 6890 pattern from 1979 for classic Men's Dress/Business Shirt with button front, neckband, patch pocket, topstitching, and pleated button cuffs or French cuffs.

What's really cool is that you get the pattern and instructions for FIVE different collar choices: forward-point collar; button-down collar; Eton (or club) collar with pin; abbreviated (shallow) club collar; or band collar. The Eton collar, which has rounded edges rather than points, was invented by Eton students as a way to distinguish themselves from students at other prep schools. A pinned collar hold the points down and lifts the knot of the tie forward. Very classy.

The original pattern is sized for men's size 40 chest, neck 15 1/2 (15.5). The standard sleeve length is 33, but that could be easily shortened or lengthened. Suggested fabrics include any kind of shirting: poplin, lightweight denim, broadcloth, oxford cloth, batiste, chambray, flannel, pinwale corduroy. It's suitable for stripes, plaids, and checks.

This original YEAR pattern is uncut and factory folded. The envelope is shopworn, but the pattern is clean and pristine. It comes to you in an archival acid-free clear sleeve for protected storage.

I check each pattern carefully to be sure it’s as described, but of course if you’re not happy, please let me know—I’ll fix it! If you have any questions, just ask.

Thanks for stopping by Flora's Needle, and happy sewing!
