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

Breeze shirt

Excellent pattern, very quick and easy to make. I did however alter the sleeves for a girls shirt by shortening the sleeves and putting a frill on them. I plan on making lots more.

Haven't started

I reviewed the pattern and thought it is awesome! I will start on it soon and leave a feedback...

The perfect beach shirt!

The Breeze shirt was perfect for our trip to the beach. My 6 year old was so happy to have a shirt like his grandpa's. I made two and he lived in them for our vacation. Thank you for the amazing pattern! I sew mostly with knits, so it is fun to have a pattern to dig into my woven fabrics.

Love this shirt!

I’ve been waiting for T&T to come out with a nice woven fabric shirt for boys, so I snatched this one up as soon as it was released and made 2. I love all the options and versatility, and of course the instructions are excellent and well done as always. Thanks for this fantastic pattern!

Breeze Shirt

I love the Breeze Shirt! I’m really impressed with the finishing touch of the French seams, and it was easier to do than I thought! The instructions are great, clear and easy to follow. And I love all the additional blog posts and videos, they are so helpful!
