Description

I finished this a couple months ago, but I’m still pretty proud of this project. I decided to make an all-linen camp shirt for my husband as he likes the style, but has a hard time finding shirts to fit his long torso.

I based the shirt on a “Kwik Sew” camp shirt pattern with an inset strip on one side. I had to do some adjusting because the pattern had 1/4" seam allowances and I needed about 1/2" to finish the seams so the linen won’t ravel. Fortunately, he’s a bit bigger than the small and a bit smaller than the medium so I used the medium pattern and only had to make some teensy adjustments.

The shirt is dark blue with a gray stripe with embroidery to snazz it up in the manner of those nice vintage Nat Nast shirts.

    I’m envious! Or is that “menvious”?

    What a shirt! That looks SO Nordstroms!

    Shawn in one lucky dude!
