I went back and read all the shirt threads, and now I'm confused.
I've pretty much figured out that I need small buttons and fine white cotton which is the direction I was leaning in anyway, but I now have no idea which pattern to use.
I HAVE to make him new shirts his are all falling apart and not correct for his impression anyway (PI square men's shirt is what I had the last time I made him shirts).
I currently have the Heidi Marsh M-1-CWS Man's Civil War Shirt and the Homespun Gentleman's Dress Shirt Patterns.
Can I use one of these patterns or should I look for something else. If I can use one of these do I need to make any modifications to the pattern for accuracy?
My husband portrays a Federal Captain although he steps up and down in rank depending on the needs of the unit and the event. Usually he's an officer though, so I'm aiming for that in his clothing.
HELP...my head is about to explode.
