Description

I think I graduated from “novice” to “intermediate” with this project — my first ever men’s shirt!

This is based on Colette Patterns’ 1014 “Negroni”. Instead of shirting, I used ponte knit, which I think added a lot more thickness to the shirt, especially the front facing. Compared to other men’s shirts, this pattern seems to have more layers and interfacing. Even the seams are flat-felled seams. The thickness of the fabric was a challenge, but in the end, I think my husband likes the way it came out. It’s a button-down with the feel of a soft polo shirt.

    You have done a great job here. It’s a lovely shirt. I’m on the verge of starting a shirt for my man, gulp!

      Thank you and good luck! I was so nervous. There are so many pieces compared to my other projects. At first I wanted it to be a surprise gift, but then quickly realized that I needed to keep testing the fit along the way ;p
