Shirts

Kannik's Korner Shirt 1750-1800

Man's pullover shirt with shoulder reinforcement panels, neck and underarm gussets, to be made plain for the common man or fancy with chest and wrist ruffles for the gentleman. In The Providence Gazette of 1771, "RUN away . . .  an Englishman . . .  Had on . . .  a Check Shirt, with white Wristbands".

This pattern calls for between 3 1/4 to 3 3/4 yds. but we feel about 3 yards is enough for one medium sized shirt or 5 yards for two medium sized shirts. Shirts may be made of off white linen shirting, 5.5 oz.. Most common shirts of this time were made of unbleached linen, 6.5 oz or for a warm winter shirt white, striped or checked wool flannel. One, two or even three thread shirt buttons may be used at the collar but most original shirts had two thread shirt buttons at the collar and removable sleeve buttons at the wrist band. Some argue for half inch cloth covered buttons. For hand sewing the shirt use 35/2 linen thread or for finer shirts 60/2 linen thread to match.

For officer's and gentlemen's shirts try the very fine and tightly woven linen shirting, 5.75 oz. with very fine 2.8 oz. linen bosom ruffles.

Includes all sizes XS-XXXL

Kannik's Korner Shirt 1790-1830

Man's pullover shirt with shoulder reinforcement panels, neck and underarm gussets, to be made plain for the common man or fancy with chest ruffles for the gentleman. This pattern will make a shirt that is identical to this extant shirt at the National Maritime Museum. In The Providence Gazette of 1795, "RAN AWAY . . .  an indented Servant . . .  had on, and carried with him . . .  2 striped blue and white [wool] Flannel Shirts, and 1 white Tow and Linen Shirt".

This pattern calls for between 3 1/4 to 3 3/4 yds. but we feel about 3 yards is enough for one shirt or 5 yards for two shirts. Shirts may be made of off white linen shirting, 5.5 oz.. For poorer impressions unbleached linen, 6.5 oz or for a warm winter shirt white wool flannel. One or two thread shirt buttons may be used at the collar with an additional thread shirt buttons on each wristband or many shirts had sleeve buttons at the wrist band. Some argue for cloth covered buttons. For hand sewing the shirt use 35/2 linen thread or finer 60/2 linen thread to match.

For officer's and gentlemen's shirts try the very fine and tightly woven linen shirting, 5.75 oz. with very fine 2.8 oz. linen bosom ruffles.

This pattern calls for between 3 1/4 to 3 3/4 yds. but we feel about 3 yards is enough for one shirt or 5 yards for two shirts.

This pattern specifically calls for two thread shirt buttons at the collar and removable sleeve buttons at the wrist band. For hand sewing the shirt use 35/2 linen thread or finer 60/2 linen thread to match.

For officer's and gentlemen's shirts try the very fine and tightly woven linen shirting, 5.75 oz. with very fine 2.8 oz. linen bosom ruffles. This very fine 2.8 oz. linen is also what is used to make neck, handkerchiefs, cloths, and stocks.

After painting they can be polished using modern shoe polish. Historical blacking recipes can be used such as Preventing the Agony of Da-Feet. Oil based paint will also work but be careful since some will effect the canvas and take very long drying times. Tassels are an option.
