Blue Steel

I made another version of McCall’s 6383 for my husband. This is a groovy pattern from the 70’s I’ve made once before. I used a dark chambray for the the body and a colorful plaid for the under-collar, collar stand, and the inside of the pocket flap. The only pattern changes I made were to make this short sleeved, I toned down the large collar and I took 4 inches off of the length. I really love this pattern! I’ve made him a shirt from a modern pattern (McCall’s 6044 if you’re interested) and I find this vintage pattern to have a better fit, better directions and is better drafted than the modern one. More photos and details can be found in my blog Dapper Duds.
