Description

Mens summer shirt with front pockets and contrasting fabric on the collar stand and button placket.

If you´re interested in details these are the good things:

  • The sleeves are sewn in before the side seams are stitched (as a T shirt)
  • The collar button plackets is an enlargement of the front pieces, but I cut it as a different piece to add a contrast fabric.
  • I made it with short sleeves, so no cuffs to worry about.
    And the ¿? things:
    The yoke, back and front pieces are assembled before stitching the pockets to the front. Next time I´ll sew the pocket to the body before to avoid having to work with so much fabric.

    I love this, but how does he feel about the cute print? My hubby would have a cow over it.

      He chose this print himself from my stash, which happens to be one of the most pricey japanese cottons I have. The man knows the stuff!

    I love the contrasting detail. My partner wants me to make him a shirt so much and I keep putting it off because I’m a bit worried It wont turn out so good. This is great inspiration, thank you :-)
