Sewing for my guys

A Cessim Shirt for Clay

Have you heard of Sofilantjes Patterns?  I really like the sleek style and unique designs! Since I have only our youngest (who is 17) at home, I don’t often get to test. When Anne posted the testing call for Cessim Shirt I was so excited, I applied without asking Clay. What?! He usually approves any testing I do for him; so this was a change from the norm. His measurements are just outside of the chart, so I wasn’t sure I would get chosen. Luckily, there is enough ease that the Cessim Shirt fit Clay perfectly without any changes except for adding about 3/4″ in length. Of course he got to choose the fabrics! I want to make sure he will wear it!


There are many options to choose from with this pattern, but I know my son’s style so chose option B which is color-blocked on one side. He loves the high neck and even got used to the color-clocked v neck and thinks it’s kind of cool. I top-stitched the seams where the two colors of fabric meet so the extra seams won’t rub on the inside.


I love how Clay’s shirt turned out and can’t wait to have time to make another! The next one will have a round neck to be a little different.
