|Pattern Description: |
Update: It's Cinco de Mayo, so time for a custom shirt for the day. Just whipped up another using the XXL pattern. Pics below.
Men's short sleeve shirt. I made a muslin of the long sleeve XL with cuff variations. But this project, I made a XL short sleeve in bright pattern. Pattern envelope also contains patterns for long sleeve, simple vest and ties.
From the pattern envelope:
MEN'S LINED VEST, SHIRT, TIE IN TWO LENGTHS AND BOW TIE: Vest has front welts, back and back belt are cut of lining fabric; shirt with buttoned front has back pleated to yoke forming forward shoulder seams and cuff variations; lined tie in two lengths and bow tie also included
Placket and Button
Pattern comes in two separate choices, S/M/L in one envelope; XL, XXL and XXXL in another.
Unfortunately the pattern envelope back is lacking men's shirt sizing details. Here's my resulting sizes from the XL and XXL, compared to most of my men's RTW shirt. Hope this helps you.
Long Sleeve Length=33/34
Long Sleeve Length=33/34
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
-Both short sleeve or long sleeve pattern options
-Cuff options include normal buttoned, or French cuff
-Includes pattern for button down collar or collar stay pockets (cool!)
-Loved how the sleeve was sewn in flat, with the shirt sides, without use of set-in sleeve. Very fast method and easy to finish the sleeve seams.
Cotton print from Joann's. For those of you who don't recognize the characters, the print is called Agent P from the
Disney cartoon of Phineas and Ferb. It's fun and I couldn't resist it. I frequently don't like the quality of Joann's fabric. But this one is an exception. It cut and pressed like a dream, and barely shrank. Unlike the printed flannel recently purchased there which ripped in my hands while pinning it.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
-Added one inch to length of sleeve
-Shrunk size of pocket. The pattern makes it enormous.
-Collar size might be shortened in the future, but not on this project.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Absolutely! It's a great pattern with options for the future.
Fun. Easy to construct. And makes a great muslin for the future.
I've got my eye on some more cool fabric for another casual shirt
