Breeze Shirt

The Breeze Shirt is simple and casual, made for the warm, relaxed days of summer.  Long sleeves protect delicate skin from the harsh sun, and an easy, loose fit ensures comfort.  

While we initially designed this sewing pattern with boys in mind, it suits girls equally well. 

The Breeze Shirt will be completely at home playing in the sand at the beach or dangling toes in a cool stream in the forest.  Keep little ones feeling breezy and comfortable with this simple and classic top.

Quick sew before holidays

3 shirts-3 days!
A few weeks before my 2 grandkids ( 14 month & 3 years) were off to Mexico , my daughter in-law was searching for long sleeve tops to keep the kids protected from the sun.
I happened to see this pattern on my Instagram feed so ordered the PDF .
I made 1 top out of a light weight blue/white pin striped cotton- linen. 2 tops from cotton gauze. They were so quick to make and quite satisfying. The grandkids looked brilliant in them!

Breeze shirt for kids

Easy pattern to follow, good clear instructions. The shirt has quite nice finishing, looks great on the inside. Sizing runs very accurate. I sew a lot, so it's getting high praise from me.

Great shirt

A little more tricky than other T&T patterns but turns out well with perseverance.

Gorgeous shirt!

I must admit I found this a bit tricky with my material fraying left right and Center, however the French seams solved the
Problem perfectly and look ooh sooo pretty! I’m extremely happy with the end product and my son looks fab in it, soo much nicer than an ordinary tshirt! Also looks great under a pathfinder vest! It’s a real winner for me

Great Pattern

Love the look of this shirt! I did find it a bit tricky with the sleeves (but I haven’t made anything from a pattern for many years). My husband was so impressed with my efforts that he wants one too.
