This man here will always challenge my husband’s position in my heart. I made this shirt for his birthday in time to mail it to him as a surprise. When he got it, he thought it was the pants to the suit I started 2 years ago. No such luck buddy! Those pants will be finished soon, but with a different material for the waistband and the pockets. You see, when I made the suit coat, I ran out of fabric to finish the pants. Besides, I doubt seriously he will be able to fit the pants by now.
Some people say they don’t like sewing for family. Well, not me…I LOVE sewing for my family. Especially, when they aren’t picky about what I make and how I make it. They give me the freedom to just create, with no specific deadlines, besides the ones I place on myself, and their happiness when I see them wearing the garment. I just love it!!! For REAL!!! ((((-: Big grins on my face.
|Kwiksew 2777 Men’s shirt cut in size medium/small.|
The pattern is Kwiksew 2777. I cut a size a size medium for the shoulders, and graded down to a size small at the waist and arms. The Shirt runs really large, so since this pattern was custom fit to him, I’m sorry, but its hard to remember all that I have done to this pattern to get it to fit him. I have made this one for him and my dad several times. Sometimes, I just don’t blog everything. Here are a few close-ups for you to enjoy.
