Isn’t my husband so cute?


I used Simplicity 5366. The pattern’s measurements classified Jason as large, but I wound up taking the whole shirt in to a medium. I found the cuff placket to be a little confusing (it was my first time!), but otherwise the shirt went together very easily and rather quickly.



It was really satisfying to just cut out a pattern and make a shirt, with no modifications or major design decisions.

Good work on the stripes. Those can be difficult to work with but you did a good job and he looks happy.  Smiley

Well done! My husband keeps pestering me to sew him some shirts. I have a bit of a mental block about it, but I've done a few for my son now, so I basically know how they go together. Well, minus the stand collar and cuff plackets...

Yours looks great! Smiley

The second shirt was much easier than the first! I think I'll be making more of these shirts soon. I'm calling it the anti-bro collared shirt, and it will be in lots of fun patterns!

I haven't used them, but I know that Peter Lappin has lots of tutorials for menswear. Plus he's just fabulous! http://malepatternboldness.blogspot.com/
