    Amazing versatility, e.g. Menswear: A Basic T Turned Avant-Garde etc well constructed gender friendly, Great Job!!!

    I made a medium for my guy and it fits like a glove. I did shorten it though. Thanks a million, I’ll be making these shirts for him as a staple gift! As for measurement questions, I used an existing t-shirt of his as my guide which size to cut, will post pictures of him with it soon. I had so much fun making this project! No serger used, all zig zag stitch. Thanks again! Super pattern!

    Hello, first of all thank you very much for this t shirt pattern. I haven’t started it yet because I have a doubt. Do the pattern size already includes the seam allowances or do I have to add them on the fabric? Pleaseeee clear things up for me. THANK YOU :D

      I think on the pattern it says 5/8 seam allowances are included?

    Hi everybody.

    I’m working on a How To and size chart for this!! I realized there is an easier way to sew it than the way I sewed it when I was taking pictures for the How To originally, so I’m going to redo it so you all have the best instructions.

    Hi MargeauxVittoria

    yes, it’s in honor of Pete from Etsy! Besides helping us to get settled in our new space we think he’s a great guy and now father of the most beautiful Sidonie.

    Jeffrey: There’s more to come! We just finished shooting a blazer….

    Excellent! I’ve already gotten my bloke over to the computer to have a look and he’s happy with it. Keep the menswear coming!! The sizing will all be there when we print, won’t it? Also, one measurement that’s missing from the size chart info is shoulder width. Is there a standard shoulder width for menswear for future reference? Anyway, back to topic. Thankyou.
