Pattern Making for Men: Dress Shirts for ConductorsIn this e-dossier you will find instructions for the pattern construction of dress shirts for conductors.
In this e-dossier you will find instructions for the pattern construction of different dress shirts for conductors and musicians (strings) in standard and belly size.
Shirts for conductors need above all good freedom of movement in the arm area. Therefore, the sleeve pattern is drafted with a significantly reduced sleeve cap and thus receives a lot of movement length under the arm. This is supported by a narrower construction of the shoulder: the amount of ease included in the back width and chest width remain normal, whereby the addition to armhole depth is increased – proportionally, the shoulder is narrowed.
The shirt should also be loose fitting enough to avoid sticking to the body but still fitted enough to be worn under the suit jacket, frock or conductors coat. Extra length is added to avoid slipping out of the trousers and the side slit is also slightly reduced.
