Islander Men's Classic Sport Shirt


Another fabulous shirt design from Janet Pray of Islander Sewing Systems, this style, the Men's Classic Sport Shirt, features chest pockets hidden cleverly within the yoke seams. I fashioned this shirt from fine Italian cotton shirting for a client who admired the pattern's illustration.


Like all of Islander's patterns, The Classic Sport Shirt, goes together quickly and easily because of its superior draft. Seam allowances are adjusted so that the sewist can progress from step to step without stopping to trim and grade. The famous Islander "burrito" technique is included in the pattern instructions....a technique every sewist should learn in order to consistently produce a professional collar unit without the use of pins or basting.

I highly recommend this pattern!

I am working on this shirt, and a bit disappointed that the short sleeves "wing out" so much.
