For years I’ve been making my husbands 18th century shirts with tiny handsewn details that I doubt anyone would notice. In this video, I discuss the history behind these shirts, as well as how to make them. I do highly recommend buying the pattern from At the Sign of the Golden Scissors so you have all the information at hand.

  1. The 1994 IWTV movie really couldn’t adress the moral injustice of slavery, as it would never have occurred to the characters that there was any injustice. (Please remember that Lois was even frowned upon for treating his slaves gently…) In the 18'th century the church approved of slavery, as well as a number of other unsavory things!
    Personally I find the pediphillic aspects of the child vampire much more disturbing..

  2. The tip to pull one linen thread then cut is amazing! I'll definitely try that for my next linen project. Definitely agree, something about these style of shirts is really attractive

  3. Other iconic white shirt scenes include Mr Darcy post lake swim (1995) and Rochester after Jane saves him from the fire in his room in Jane Eyre (2011). 🥼PS I also had a crush on Horatio Hornblower 😊

  4. ❤❤❤❤❤Love love love this shirt. Magnificent. I don’t know why you didn’t make the matching linen neck tie. (Cravat?) It seems to complete the look as you said. As that was historically accurate. Not a lace ruffled Jabot, which as you said was a later style. Your hand stitches were as perfect as your lovely hands. 🧵🪡🥼🧵🪡🥼🧵🪡🥼🧵🪡🥼🧵🪡🥼🧵🪡🥼You are so beautiful and smart and amazing. You are my idea of a Renaissance Woman. Your talents are in both the sciences and the arts. Your sense of curiosity and wonder is easily conveyed in your posts. You are inspiring. So… wishing you the very best with your move. Looking forward to many more exciting episodes of the sewing doctor and mother and wife in the twenty first century. 🥰🙏🥰🙏🥰🙏🥰🙏 can’t wait to see your new sewing room, the dogs, you family and the new home. 🎄🌳🌲🌳🏡🎄🌳🌲🌳💚❤️💚 best wishes for a happy thanksgiving.

  5. Thank you so much for the super close ups of your work process! I've been stalling forever on my own linen shirt projects because of the need for stitch perfection™️ and I feel like this video might come in handy…. when I finally get working on those lol

  6. I love the shirt, but my gods that waistcoat I spied in the video looks awesome! Love embroidery
    At some point I'll learn to sew to make a shirt like this for myself, they just look awesome and comfortable to boot (always a plus), alas not able to at the moment (no time really)

  7. PLEEAAAAAASE, i am here to watch you sew, nothing else matters. You are making clothes from movies and such and the commentary at the end really ruins the video. Please, can we not just enjoy an exit from the rest of the world for one video???

    You are talented and i love the joy in your work but please, just stop with the social commentary when it is not needed.
