Breeze Shirt

Patron et directives de construction très bien faits. Résultat professionnel. Bravo!

This shirt is so beautiful! It can be easily dressed up or dressed down . It feels so good to make something that looks so professional when you are a hobby sewer.

Easy, breezy, beautiful...

There is nothing more satisfying than completing a beautifully-finished garment. With its French seaming, that feeling is possible throughout the entire process. The pattern is easy to follow, the directions are concise, and, unlike many other patterns I've encountered through the years, I didn't run into any WTF moments or roadblocks. Everyone who sees the first one I did calls it an heirloom piece. My son will be able to fit into it later this year, and I can't wait to make an adult version!

I've made these shirts to be everyday dress ups for my boys - they can be jedis or pirates or whatever, but they're wearing a comfortable and well made cotton shirt, not a polyester suit! The pattern was easy to follow and I made a few variations (like no collar on pirate shirt).

I MADE this?!?!

Wow this pattern is just beautiful! I made my first one for my little guy to wear to my mums 60th, he is going to look SO SMART. And yet he could wear it at the beach or park and it wouldn’t be out of place at all, such a versatile shirt! I found this pattern really simple to follow, there was nothing too complicated about the construction, thanks to the thorough instructions and videos. But when I turned it out and gave a final press, I was just in awe! I can’t believe I made it!

Lovely classic shirt. I made in linen as well as a very soft jersey with snaps.

This was an amazing tutorial like all of her tutorials. I have a huge learning curve ahead of me but I was able to make this project without a problem.

Very satisfying project

Beginner sewer - I made this as my very first project after simple fabric bags and hemming. The tutorials were excellent. My fabric didn't really have a right/wrong side so I got confused and put one of the arms on backwards so I couldn't complete the French seam, but it was for a Halloween costume and my daughter didn't care. She loved the shirt, which I made dress length, side seams unfinished and split from waist down (she tore the skirt section into strips to be a banshee). Upcycled a soft old sheet. Success!

French seams are stressful!!

Lovely pattern and so versatile BUT the French seams on the shoulders and sleeves absolutely do my head in!
Lots of unpicking and redoing and putting the project in “time out”

Lovely Pattern

Great easy pattern. I used the pattern for a 70's costume and added a 70's collar. Really enjoyed making it and found the instructions easy to follow. I plan to use pattern again to make more shirts for my son.
