Wardrobe by Me is one of the best shops in PDF land for men’s patterns. I should say teen to men, since the size range is huge, going from 2XS to 3XL! Christina has been working on expanding the range of men’s patterns for a while now. All of them are great, but we love the new Tropical Shirt! Both my husband and son wear Hawaiian shirts so I’m happy to have a pattern to make them. Clay didn’t hesitate when I asked if I could test the shirt for him. He chose the fabric from my stash. It’s a very nice 100% cotton that washes beautifully.
Here is a description from the pattern listing:
The Tropical Shirt PDF sewing pattern is a casual button up short sleeved shirt with a convertible collar. The shirt has side slits, a double yoke, and two back pleats. The left front has a pocket. The pattern is designed for woven fabric.
- Convertible Collar
- Short Sleeve
- Side Slits
- Double Yoke
- Front Pocket
- Straight Hem
Comes in sizes 2XS – 3XL. I sewed a size M and shortened it to my son’s desired length. I shortened the sleeves 1/2”, but Clay has them rolled up as usual.
I’m so mad at myself for forgetting to match the design on center front! Luckily Clay didn’t notice and loves his shirt. He left for school in it this morning with white shorts.
On sale for $8.50 until April 19, 2019. Don’t miss out on this one!
