I finished my McCall 5863 shirt pattern that was made in 1945. I used my Singer 404 for the shirt and my Kenmore 1050 for the buttons and buttonholes. The shirt has flat-fell seams. Instead of two pleats at the yoke like most shirts, this one has the fabric gathered. Thanks to my 404's gathering foot, this was a snap.
I am glad I had my 1959 Simplicity Sewing Book to help me along the way. The instructions in the pattern were a little brief.
I thought it would be fun to take my time-machine back to 1945.
