What I am looking for are ideas for creating an old English style shirt. With slightly puffed sleeves and a draw string front. Like in pirate movies or 16 th century style men's shirt. Where would I find a pattern for such a thing or how could I custom maked one?

You might try Folkwear patterns. They have some nice men's shirts that may be what you are looking for. Not sure about the drawstring part though.

If I am not mistaken "Folkwear" patterns has that shirt. Go to Folkwear.com, inthe mean time I look though my pattern stash and see if I may have what you ae looking for, if so it is yours.

I am pleased to see that you are getting so much pleasure from sewing I have been for many years and never feel a moment of time is time wasted. Good luck and enjoy.

Yes, check out folkwear.com for patterns. Here's their
Missouri River Boatman’s Shirt



Here's their Poet's Shirt. Seems very Jack Sparrow, right? Arggggg!

Look in the Costume sections of the pattern books.
Many have Pirate shirts which should be similar.

I've made the Missouri River Boatman's shirt and it's a great pattern. DH got lots of compliments when he wore it.

Simplicity has a pattern similar to it in their pirate costume line, as does Butterick in making history. Not quite as accurate as Folkwear, but it is a lot more budget friendly.

The ren faire I belong to has pirates, that I managed to get in the middle of for the faire's stuff although I missed doing anything with it for 2 years now. Both men wear these patterns, and what they told me to get to "fit" in with theirs.

Maybe some of these would suit your purpose: Simplicity 3758, McCall's 5446, a version from Patterns of Time. The last page, on amazon.com, offers relevant links further down the page. I googled "lace front pirate shirt pattern." It looks like "lace front renaissance shirt pattern" might yield good results, too. Good luck!
