Man's Victorian Shirt

Finally, another post and something to post about.  Life has been interfering with dreams and it has taken a while to get this project finished.  But FINALLY!  It's finished.
A men's Victorian shirt.
 This one has contrasting white on white striped bib, cuffs and collar.
I did not put a button on the band collar but may add buttonholes on either side and back for a button-on collar if we can find one.  I also put buttons on the cuffs.  Vernon thinks he has a set of cufflinks somewhere but I certainly can't find them.
So, this shirt would be available in men's sizes up to 44 with 2, 4 or 5 button options. White or off white, contrasting bib or not.
I'll update the photos as soon as I can get Vernon to model for me.


  1. Good job! Very classy looking shirt. Eager to see what you do next.

    P.S. I can't comment on your other blog today. Sigh.

    1. Hmm, I wonder why you can't comment. I guess who knows. Blogger can be a mysterious thing.

  2. What a nice job you did on this shirt! It's very classy! Looking forward to the next project -- ;o)

  3. I love it!! Really a nice looking shirt. Great job!

  4. Susan and Patty- Thanks. I can't wait to see it on him. It looks kind of sloppy on the hanger.
    I do think I'm going to do a quilt next. I've got the fabric picked out for a Celtic Knotwork quilt. Purples and blues. It should be gorgeous- I hope.


  5. Hi,

    The shirt is wonderful, great job.

    I am signing on to follow this blog. :) I love the name you chose for this blog. I just popped over from your other blog.

    I am working on a business blog too. It is not even up and running yet and I have 7 followers on it. This is so great! I hope to get it up by the end of February. If you'd like to stop by, here is the address...

    Can't wait to see your quilt. The colors sound great.

    Take care, Janet W

  6. This looks great. I wish I could sew this well! I love Victorian clothes! oh well, I guess I just have to keep trying. It's so hard to find the time, isn't it. I hope it all works out for you!

  7. It really is available, it's awesome! Very nice job, you are talented. Can't wait to see V model it!
