James Williams says, “My next project is an 1860s men’s shirt with a pleated detail at the front. The collar, cuffs, and pleated area of the shirt front will be made from fine linen, while the shirt body will feature a period-appropriate cotton print. A yoked back and shaped seams will help the shirt fit comfortably.”
