This shirt is an example of the type of non-regulation garment that was worn with uniform. The shirt features a high collar, which fastens with two Dorset buttons. A stock would have been worn around the neck so that only the edges of the collar were visible. The construction of the shirt is quite full, particularly the sleeves which are pleated. This would enable the wearer to fit into the relatively tight armed coats of the period. (1807)

I am starting "Hero Pillows"! I handmade this pillow out of one of my man's old uniform shirts. I moved the patches that were already on the shirt to create this decorative pillow! If you want one of your own, just send me a uniform shirt (with patches anywhere on it) and I will make you one for $25 (+shipping)! www.heropillows.wix.com/orders Police / Pillow / First Responder / Gifts / Under $30 / Home Decor / Fire Fighter / Rescue /
