Product Description

The 'Gibson tucks' at the shoulder's edge are named after the familiar Gibson Girl made famous by the artist Charles Dana Gibson. This ubiquitous shirt waist can be made with a standing collar or a shirt collar. The cuffs can be straight or turned back. The front closure can be made with a pleat at the front or a fly front. The shoulders are quite square. An inverted box pleat adds interest to the back view.

Made in white cotton, stiffly starched, worn with a bow at the neck, a leather belt and dark skirt; this was the favorite uniform of the office or factory girl who wished to impress her employer with her efficiency.

The pattern is multi-sized 10 through 18. Fabric suggestions are: cotton sheeting, washable silk, woven or printed cottons. For the standing collar with straight cuffs purchase 2-1/2 Yds. of 45 inch wide fabric. For the shirt collar and turn back cuffs purchase 3 Yds. 45 inch wide fabric.
