Mens' 1800s Gathered Shirt Formal Dress w/ Yoke & Cuffs Heidi Marsh Sewing Pattern Small Medium
back add to cart buy now

This is a Heidi Marsh pattern, created in the 1980s and referenced from fashion books from the "era of the hoop."  No size measurements are given, but these do tend to run small because of the sizes of the era.  This gathered shirt has dropped shoulders and long sleeves attached to cuffs.  Very small collar.  Front gathers.  Normally made in a cotton or linen, but can also be made from wool.  It is very full at the hips, but instructions are given on how to adjust this to your needs.

There is no pattern layout or listing of pieces, but from reading the instructions, all pieces seem to be intact.  It has been cut to size S/M, but no sizing chart is given.

Vintage items have lived a previous life, thus they may show signs of wear, such as stains, creases, tears, foxing, marks or pinholes. We do our best to describe accurately. 

Some patterns may have missing pieces.  These are labelled “wounded birds”, and will list the missing pieces. Please read the listing carefully.

Patterns are shipped in plastic bags, with a backing board.  This will protect them from the elements (and the post office).

In our continued effort to remain environmentally friendly, your Paypal or credit card receipt will serve as your receipt.

We combine shipping!  If the shipping does not look accurate in your shopping cart, please email us!  

Please read the listing carefully prior to purchase.  By purchasing, you acknowledge that you have read the entire listing and have asked any questions prior to purchase.  We do not accept refunds if for situations where the purchaser did not read the listing.  We are here to help and answer questions!


We love to ship to our international customers, but want you to know a few things.  International shipping prices have gone up tremendously over the past couple of years.  Please check the shipping carefully before purchasing, and if you have questions, please email us.  

Import taxes/VAT are the responsibility of the purchaser.  Please do not ask us to alter a customs form, as it is illegal and we can’t risk our business on a lie.

International packages take longer to arrive due to processing them through customs.  International delivery times can vary from week to week, so please be patient and check with your post office if your package hasn’t arrived.
