Burnley & Trowbridge Shirt Sew Along Companion Pattern


( / )


Shirts in the 18th century served as the male undergarment for both upper and lower body, being made long enough to tuck between the legs before putting on breeches. While under-drawers existed, they were not universally worn. By exchanging dirty body linens for clean ones multiple times a week or even daily--a process known as "shifting"-- 18th century people maintained body hygiene.
