This classic shirt style developed from the basic Anglo dress shirt with the addition of decorations and slight modification of it's construction. From its' origins east of the Mississippi, it spread westward with the Cherokee migration to Oklahoma, where it remains a favorite among both participants and officials at the traditional gatherings and powwows held there and around the rest of the country today.
As there are very few early Cherokee shirts in existence, this pattern was developed from research of old descriptions, photographs, paintings and museum examples. The blousy fit and large sleeves allow complete freedom of movement, making it a very practical and a comfortable garment for wear with street clothes or with a dance outfit. The pattern includes variations for ribbon placement, along with detailed, illustrated instructions for assembly.
