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. 

Sizes:  12-18m to Size 10

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.

Love it!!!!

My grandson was so excited to get this shirt. Fun to make. The fit was so great. Looks so much better than just a tshirt for boys. Great summer shirt with the short sleeve option. I will be making lots of the Breeze shirts for all of my grandsons.

Great pattern

It is a breeze to sew this tunic. I made several in linen and loved the detailed instructions. The fit is great.

So easy

I haven't sewed women's for a while, and this went together like a dream. Can't wait to see my grandson in it

Great pattern!

If you’re trying to decide whether this pattern is for you. Stop. It is. After completing a ton of shirts for my son and my nieces I can truly say this pattern works for the beginner through to the more advanced sewist. The instructions are so clear and concise with the option to use a video tutorial. Easy links to take you to adaptation videos. The finish is immaculate, seriously. I kinda feel more proud of how it looks inside than out with the Beautiful French seams. I’m in love with this pattern and so will you be. With design options endless you can really create something that is unique yet comfortable. Stylish and sensible. Get it!!!!!
