1939 Men's Sports Shirts S30-3090
S30-3090; 1939 Men's Sports Shirts
Originally by Simplicity, 'MEN’S SPORTS SHIRTS. Slip-over model with three different closings, are these casual shirts. All gathered to yoke at back. Style 1 is buttoned or slide fastened at front, may have one or two patch pockets and short or long sleeves. Style 2 is closed with a buttoned front band; it has long sleeves.'
This 15-piece pattern gives a let-out at all side seams. Advice is given when measuring for sleeve length (as coincides with chest measure), as follows:
With arm bent upward, place tape measure at base of neck. Run tape from center back to elbow, across elbow crook and over the wrist bone.
3/4" seams are given at underarm (all side) seams and 1/2" seams are given on all other edges. No hem is allowed, but ½” is given on bottom edges of shirt for turning.
Size set A fits 38" to 42" chest, 15" to 16" neck.
Size set B fits 42" to 46" chest, 16" to 17" neck.
PATTERN NOT IN YOUR SIZE? Upon request, I am happy to furnish an additional schematic showing where to adjust the pattern pieces with instructions on how to re-size the pattern.
