Too Many Choices....

It's about time I sewed a shirt for my husband, Roger...especially since his birthday is coming up! So from my collection of well over 100 vintage menswear patterns, I've managed to narrow my choices to these....

While of course I already have a hand-drafted shirt pattern for him, working with vintage patterns is fun...and always spark ideas for my own original shirt designs. So now I need to decide. I'll flip through these patterns between packing interfacing orders, and come up with a final choice by the end of the day.

Here is the fabric I'll be using...a cotton print.

I'll be working on the shirt this evening, and within a day or so I'll show you what pattern I chose, and why...along with some pics of the instruction sheets.

I love making mens shirts. My husband just loves when I make him one :) They are just so fun to make.

I feel completely inadequate when I learn how many men's shirt patterns you own. My collection is miniscule. And I LOVE that fabric!

I am awed by the number of mens shirt patterns you own! I'll also be interested to know the reason why you chose a particular pattern for this fabric.
