Long Beach, Cali...
Also called a Mexican Wedding Shirt, my husband and I grew up seeing these traditional Latin-American shirts in South Texas. I started with a basic boy’s button up shirt pattern and drafted all the detailed curves and pockets myself.
A traditional Guayabera is pastel colored and has tiny pleats instead of embroidery. My son wanted red and I decided to go with embroidery since I’ve often seen it on modern Guayabera’s and I thought it would be easier.
My son picked the race car buttons and the shapes he wanted on the embroidery. I’m not sure I like how the buttons look, but he sure does!
