Simple & Stylish

I love the simplicity of this pattern. I made a mock up first for my partner to check the sizing and fit and he loves it. Just waiting on a fabric delivery to make the real thing. The instructions are easy to follow and the collar/facing is a clever construction. It’s great to be able to make it out of different types of fabric. I know I will make many more for family members too.
Thanks for the great pattern!

Fantastic pattern

I made this shirt for my husband. It was my first attempt at Menswear. The directions were very thorough. I will definitely be making more.

Incredible design with beautiful outcome!

I made this linen shirt on my grandmother's Singer treadle sewing machine as I wanted all the French seams to be perfect. All I can say is that it was a slow sew and the end results were extremely gratifying. The videos along the way were so helpful for construction purposes and added to the depth of this pattern and the instructions. I still took my time and enjoyed every step. The final product was such a joy to give to my husband who LOVES wearing his linen pants. This Breeze top is the perfect addition to his wardrobe. I can highly recommend the Breeze Shirt for anyone looking for quality and function. It really is a beautiful shirt!

I love this shirt (so does my husband!)

I haven't sewn for years, and never downloaded a pattern, so the detailed instructions which came with this pattern were great. I recycled an old flannelette sheet as I felt I wanted to practice first, but I'm really pleased with the finished shirt. It looks amazing and yet it's not as difficult as I thought it would be. The french seams give it a really professional, smart finish, but the style is relaxed and timeless. It's also a great fit for my husband who always struggles to get anything long enough. He loves it! I think I will be making several more for him with some different options.

Excellent pattern

I did not make any change to the pattern and it turned out splendidly! My husband has wider shoulders and wider arms and this pattern, with the relaxed fit, is the perfect match for him. I also purchased another pattern (indulging myself this time) and can't wait to start sewing again.

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!
