I have some beautiful cashmere muted plaid fabric that I bought a few years ago from Michael's - originally to make myself a suit. I never got around to it and now I'm retired and don't really need this type of clothing like I did back then. I just happened to think about sewing it into a shirt jacket for DH as he stays cold all the time, but I have no idea what pattern would be the best. I'd like it to be similar to the beautiful Pendleton's style.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm thinking I would like to line it with some really good quality rayon twill lining fabric that is available from Atlanta Thread.

That sounds fantastic. I have no direct experience with Islander patterns, but they are on my todo list. She has several men's shirt patterns

I haven't made this (KS 2000) but always like the drafting of Kwik Sew patterns (Ignore the swoopy hairdo on the real model).


My favorite men's shirt that I've made for my husband many times is this 1980's
Calvin Klein Vogue Pattern 2258 .

A cashmere shirt-jac sounds wonderful.

Hmmmmm - some very good suggestions here. I checked out the Negroni and it has a convertible collar - or I'd be more interested. I think the Calvin Klein one would work pretty good - but I can't find it in the right size (this was before graded patterns). I think I like the looks of the Kwik Sew pattern, but wish I could find a line drawing of it. So far, I think it will probably be the Kwik Sew. I haven't sewn that much with the Kwik Sew line, but the ones I have used have been very straightforward patterns and easy to put together.

I almost forgot the Islander patterns. I like the 213 - it looks like it could be a winner. Hmmm - gotta think about this one too! DH is more of the classic looks guy - at 81 he IS a classic!

I just got to thinking that I don't really say "Thank You" often enough for all his support of my sewing obsession. He built my sewing room and is always coming up with things that help me with his carpentry skills. It would be a "good thing", I think!

There is a great shirt jacket for men in Burda Magazine 10/2009 (132). I've made it up several times and everyone always loves it.

Here is the Technical Drawing and another view.

ekFritz,

I absolutely love that pattern - only problem is that I don't have any Burda magazines! I checked on Ebay and did find one, but I'm not sure if it is the right one. Is this it?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Burda-Fashion-Style-Magazine-10-2009-English-Instructions-NEW-/230702110827?pt=Magazines&hash=item35b6ead86b

Sort of expensive for the one pattern - but then it just might have other patterns that I would love. I've avoided Burda magazines because I absolutely hate the process of tracing off patterns - but I guess I could give it a try!

I like that one. What do you think of it out of cordouroy? Or heavy weight flannel? .......... I have never worked with cordouroy but Love the feel of it & warmth.
