My first menswear pattern! I used Colette Pattern’s Negroni. It’s made with bazin (a dyed west african fabric) with a contrast wax print. It was also the first time making something (besides a skirt) for someone else to wear so I felt very unsure the entire time about the size but in the end it fit him perfectly.
I wrote more in my sewing blog here: http://cathywu.com/journal/treadling/2013/01/02/colette-negroni/
