Mens Breeze Shirt

I really like this pattern. It is well drafted with excellent instructions. Overall it came together really well. The only bit I didn't like was the way the side splits were done. It didn't feel intuitive and I felt there were easier methods ... but that is only my opinion. I feel this shirt has something different to offer with it's lovely style details. I did make a size smaller than stated on the packet as it has a lot of ease and the fit turned out fine. I will definitely make another probably with eyelets and leather laces to thread through. I would make it out of linen again as it has a rustic feel.

Lovely pattern

This pattern is very easy to follow - even for an inexperienced sewer like me. The instructions are very clear. I've made two so far - one a practice shirt out of an old duvet cover, and one out of some lovely drapey viscose. My husband loves them - they're just his style, so lots of brownie points for me :) Everything I'd made previously was for me so I'm really glad to have found something I can make for him without having to do any complicated fitting. I can see me making lots of these.

Very well done pattern.

I have never sewn Anything before and picked this pattern as my first. It was easy to follow. Instructions where easy to follow. The videos where a nice addition and very glade they where available. I’m a big guy and made the biggest size available. Only thing I would change is the caller. With my short neck the caller sits to high, but that’s not a bad mark on the shirt or pattern. I don’t have enough experience to figure out how to alter the caller, I plan to make several more. They are very nice fitting.

Easy, Comfy and beautiful

As the instructions were very clear and easy to follow, making this shirt was so enjoyable. I made one for my husband and now he wants more and so does my son.
My husband says that it is very comfortable to wear especially here where the weather can be very hot!

Thank you for sharing this great pattern!

Great project!

I sewed this out of linen as a work shirt for my husband. I had made the children's breeze shirt many times and this one was just as easy. I modified the measurements a little to fit my husband's very tall height. The resulting shirt looks great and he says it is very comfortable. I highly recommend this pattern!

Great pattern

I was asked to make a father the same shirt I made for his son. This pattern is great! Learned some new techniques even :)

Great Pattern

I've made a Breeze shirt for my husband and it came out so nicely with the sleeve tabs, neckline details and French Seams. I will be making another one with pockets next time and I predict this pattern will get a lot of use! With this pattern/tutorial and all the others from Twig and Tale I've seen so far, you get so many little tips along the way that take your sewing skills, and the finished garments, to the next level. The videos are really helpful too for someone like me who is often confused by diagrams. Thanks T&T
