Here is another version"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QNYL-3u1E0

As I mentioned, there is also "The Girl in the Black Velvet Band. What other songs have clothing in their titles?

Just for further information here are lines that I have not found in "The Little Shirt KMy Mother Made for Me "   Then came the day that   we were finally wed...We made a handsome couple they all said...While standing beside my bride in church...I heard a rip. then gave a awful lurch...The people stared and all the bridesmaids fainted...And some were taking pictures I could see...Twas a lucky thing for me that I was wearing...The little shirt my mother made for me.

Coughton Court still has the coat (or a modern facsimile). Sheared dyed, dried, spun, woven and tailored in 24 hours, for a wager. Throckmorton Coat & here too. A modern song by Bryn Phillips
song - the Throckmorton Coat at an event to re-create the "coat in a day" wager.

the Portway Pedlers used to sing a different song with a chorus "how do you like my blue". Their son was director of Chippenham Folk Festival until last year. Can't find the lyrics.

& my song Knittershanty first on list.

A WHITE SPORT COAT

As recorded by Marty Robbins, 1957.

A white sport coat and a pink carnation?
I'm all dressed up for the dance.
A white sport coat and a pink carnation?
I'm all alone in romance.

Once you told me long ago
To the prom with me you'd go.
Now you've changed your mind, it seems.
Someone else will hold my dreams.

A white sport coat and a pink carnation?
I'm in a blue blue mood.

REPEAT.
