On the lookout for a Father’s day present, or want to spruce up your, or a loved one’s, wardrobe? Try out this Negroni Men’s shirt pattern from Colette Patterns. This pattern comes in two versions, a long sleeve and short sleeve, great for year round wear and multiple staple shirts for your closet. The shirt is a retro style bowling shirt, with generous ease for a comfortable fit. This is also a great pattern for beginners, with great instructions and basic finishing techniques to ease you into more serious garment construction. You can also easily alter the shirt and make it your own by experimenting with different fabrics, topstitching, buttons or snaps, and contrasting fabrics for the back yoke and collar. Also, practice matching stripes and plaids! Here are some great tutorials from Colette Patterns and another favorite pattern maker Grainline Studio.


Happy Sewing!
