|Happy Super Bowl Sunday, 2013:|
Six years after sewing this S.D. Charger "fan" shirt, I still wear it when the occasion arises, even if my team did not make it.
This pattern originally came out in 2001. I would not mind sewing another shirt from this pattern.
Update SB Sunday 2010
Day when Chargers played against the Jets
I thought I wear something "spirited" this Sunday for the Charger-Jet games. This is one of my favorite "team"outfits.
This is one of my "favorite" shirt patterns. After another slight modification, I plan to make more with "stashed" fabric.
This is my second shirt with this pattern. It's amazing that a change of fabric changes the entire mood!
* I shortened the sleeves because I did not have enough fabric left from my previous project, McCall's 5278 shawl collar jacket
* I omitted interfacing to reduce the bulk while working with this decorator type fabric.
Footbal fan shirt
I wanted a basic, fuss-free shirt. I wish I had sewn this six years earlier!
This could be an updated version of the 8 looks, 1 easy pattern for a nice basic shirt
Out of print from 2001: Shirts have front darts and front button closure with tie (neck) options and sleeve options. I sewed View A, except I omitted the neck tie.
Size 8-10-12. I sewed a 12.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, with the exception that the collar flared out a little than what was pictured.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes! The illustrations were helpful and the directions were sufficient.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the fact that the shirt was really easy to put together (sewing the shoulder seams, side seams, attaching the interfaced collar, attaching the interfaced front facings, hemming the bottom, and adding the buttonholes and buttons). This seems like a "no frills" top.
From WalMart for really cheap, a San Diego Chargers football team woven cotton fabric. I intended to use this for future gifts for my ultimate football fans. Just for fun I thought I would use this fabric before using more expensive ones. Maybe I could wear this for future Charger games, Chargers day, sports day, etc. Maybe this would be an incentive to really "like" football more (?).
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
I lengthened the shirt by another 1/2".
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. There might be current patterns that might be identical to this out of print McCall's.
I like the high armscye and the very flattering fit. A fuss free pattern that I would highly recommend for beginners.
