This is my first piece of Menswear that I have made…but I’m sure it won’t be my last, because it turned out totally awesome. I got this lovely mustache fabric printed on organic cotton sateen from Spoonflower. I fell in LOVE with this print as soon as I saw it, I was initially going to make myself a dress in it, but it really suited this Men’s Shirt sewing pattern. I sewed the shirt true to the pattern with little alterations, it was really easy to make and fit super well! I sewed it in a size 50 here, but I did lengthen it 1" and I added a pocket. Boys really like pockets on their shirts.
I have a feeling I’m going to be making a lot more of these, guys want to be stylish too!
