This is a kit consisting of all the cut pieces, china buttons, needle, thread and instructions for making a reproduction of a shirt made for Lucius W. Gash by his mother during the war.
3rd. Lt. Lucius W. Gash was a member of Co. K, 11th N.C.S.T and was mortally wounded at the battle of Spotsylvania Court House in May of 1864.
The shirt is made of a simple plaid cotton fabric in the "cut on the square pattern" with gussets at the neck to help form the neck opening. It has a reinforcement on the interior of the shoulders of a contrasting plaid fabric. Our kit is cut copying the long shirt tail found in the original.
Our kit is cut from two different cotton plaid fabrics where appropriate. The cotton plaids are reproductions of the original fabrics found in the Gash shirt and are exclusive fabrics from Tartex Textiles.
