Civil War Clothing - SHIRTS
I am sewing the 1850's pattern 'Squares and Rectangles' working men's shirt using fabrics that are representative of the 1840's-1860's. I favor working with woven, yarn dyed 100% cotton yardages. The shirts are machine sewn for durability but the visual is period correct.  
I will do hand sewn button holes for an additional $10.00 per shirt.
Below are a few swatches of prewashed, needle ready, yardage on hand.  There are 5 more plaids in the brown and rust tones and a nice blue and white stripe and the same in green and white, that are yet to be washed and cut.  
See sizes at bottom of this page.  XXL add $8.00 for additional yardage
