After spending the last two years with my boyfriend, I realized that it was about time for me to stop talking about making him clothes, and actually create something. This was my absolute first try at creating a piece of menswear , and I have to say it was actually kind of nice! Found the fabric at Textile Fabrics in Nashville during their 40% off sale last month, cut out the pieces immediately, and then spent the next month slowly putting them together. I bought just enough of this striped cotton broadcloth to make a short sleeved shirt, and was crossing my fingers when adding in the SA. Sean is 6’2, with broad shoulders, so I just added 1.5" to the bottom hem, and the outcome was almost perfect! Did not have to take in/out very much from the pattern at all.
Finally I let him actually wear the shirt after taking some pictures, it looks so good!
