Brooklyn, New Yo...
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.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
