This first stage of the Prince's Shirt research project is all about documenting and recording. While it might seem overly fussy to measure and photograph every detail, it may prove very useful in making comparisons with other period garments in order to date it.
At the moment my research is all about recording while I (try to) suspend judgement and avoid coming to conclusions prematurely.
Although I have measured just about every element of the shirt here are just the key sizes:
Shirt height (hemline to shoulder) - 990mm (39")
Shirt width (side seam to side seam) - 820mm (32")
Sleeve excluding cuff - 610mm (24")
Cuff depth - 85mm
Neckband depth at back - 95mm
Neckband depth at front - 135mm
Length of front opening - 460mm (18")
Width of each ruffle - 100mm
Length of fabric gathered into ruffle - approx. 650mm gathered into 250mm
Buttons - 10mm
