Description

This is the first mens shirt I have sewn. I like it! Now that i’ve done this one, I can customise the pattern for different styles for my husband. It is made from a vintage Butterick pattern.

In short, I enjoyed making this shirt because:

There are no curves to negotiate which is a welcome change for me and makes things much easier! I could cut this out in a morning, and have most of it sewn up in a day.

The creative scope from just one pattern, is quite infinite! There is an obvious ‘formula’ to making a man’s shirt and so this pattern – now that I know it fits perfectly – can be customised over and over and over with different details. I can combine different fabrics, add piping, make different shaped yokes, different style pockets, add embroidery or transfers, make the sleeves shorter, change the cuffs, use buttons or poppers and many other details.
