Vogue 7331 Shirt and McCall’s 4022 Jean Shorts

July 6, 2018

 

I finished my jean shorts, and a button down shirt to go with it using 1950s vintage sewing patterns; Vogue 7331 and McCall’s 4022. These are really practical and wearable, I’ve already worn the shorts a hand full of times.

My shirt is made from a swallow print navy cotton fabric with black buttons. I’m pretty happy with the way this turned out, this was my first attempt at making a shirt, the instructions for this were really basic although YouTube videos were helpful in how to construct a shirt.

 

 

These are my second pair of shorts made from McCall’s 4022 and I see making more from this pattern. I love them – the pockets are huge! They’ve really comfy in a blue denim. I also had a go at top stitching at the pockets and around the waistband – it could be neater but it really adds a pretty detail.

  1. Hello Nat and We Sew Retro posters,

    I have a suggestion – it would be great if entries could include a link to any patterns used on the Vintage Pattern Wiki. Also, you can edit the Vintage Pattern Wiki to include a link to your review to help other sewers who are thinking of buying or making the patterns you used.

    For example, I think Nat used this pattern:

    P.S. Your shorts look fabulous!
