I’ve never sewn for my son before. He just turned 13 and I started sewing seriously just as he started gaining an affection for expensive labels and developed a hypersensitive issue with his self image. Ugh, junior high!
I also had a problem finding trendy patterns for his size. Not a child size yet not a man’s size. He had a few growth spurts and voila, I finally had something to work with. I made the size small and it fits great. This pattern comes in just small, medium, and large.
Anyway he LOVES this shirt. I’ll have to make him another for school however as this is not in the uniform colors.
The pattern is McCalls 6044. Pretty straight forward although setting in the sleeves gave me the blues. I eventually worked through it.
