But then I started to notice EVERY GUY on the street was wearing a plaid shirt. I really like them but by the time I get around to sewing one it will be the 3 millionth plaid shirt in our city. So I got to thinking about making a heavily western influenced style but in a solid colour. Reason 1) Not everyone will have one and 2) No plaid matching (yes!).
Imagine my delight when I received an email from Colette Patterns introducing their first mens pattern….and it’s a shirt!
Here’s an even better photo of the Colette Negroni shirt.
Colette Patterns was even generous enough to offer downloadable pocket pattern variations.
My suggestion is that someone plan a Negroni Sew Along. I am too much a beginner (seamstess and blogger!) to lead this myself but it would be a fun sew along, I think. And our other halves only get the shirt at the end if they agree to pose for progress photos!
