I've just bought Burda 7359


for the next shirt, but don't fancy that spread open collar.

How hard would it be, to add a traditional collar and stand instead? I can see one potential problem: the front facings (button/buttonhole bands) do not come up to the neck. Hmm, I'd have to alter them too.

I chose this pattern because I like the princess-style seams on side fronts and backs, and really like the shoulder yokes on fronts and back. It's just that dopey looking spread open collar which I don't like.

Advice please! Many thanks.

Wish I could help you but I don't know the answer! The technical drawing isn't very clear on how that collar goes together.

You would have to redraft the neckline (and probably the center front of the shirt) and draft a collar stand (band) and collar to fit. You would probably have to adjust the back neckline of the shirt also.

Do you have another shirt pattern with the collar you like? Perhaps you can overlay the pattern you like over this one and sort of morph them around the neckline.

Either way, it's doable in my mind. It just depends on which method you are most comfortable with. :)

Instead of redrafting the collar on this pattern, would it be possible to use a different Burda men's shirt pattern, then use 7359 to help redraft the body of the other pattern so that it has princess-style seams? Hope that makes sense.

There is a Vogue that is close. Maybe you can morph the 2 patterns. I'll look up the pattern & edit in a minute...

Here it is!

Thanks! but don't worry, I've found and ordered a different pattern which looks even better. It's got the pointed yokes which I really wanted.

McCall's M6044, version E.



It's also got proper collar and stand, proper cuff plackets, and nicely shaped pockets with flaps. With any luck it will reproduce the cowgirl shirt which I bought years ago in USA and wore out.

I really thought I had added the link. It may have been the day I got kicked out of PR. Shortly after, I got an email saying I needed to change password.

I'll still add it, just in case. Glad you found a pattern!

I may get that one for my husband, as well. Looks like a nice one!

Let us know how that one turns out.

I like Burda best for fit, so this is the one I'll probably turn to for my next classic men's shirt:

Burda 7045

Ooh, one of them has darts! I saw a man on TV who had darts in his shirt. I asked my husband if the men around the office had darts in their shirts. He looked at me like I had asked in Latin! Why did I think he'd notice something like that??
