Great Pattern

I made the men's shirt and I absolutely love everything about the pattern - from the detailed instructions, the accompanying videos, the extra features like the pockets and reverse facing to the ease of the pattern and the added touch of using french seams. I definitely plan to make more for the whole family.

A breeze to sew (except if you use linen)

If you’re like me and you want to sew something nice for your husband, but the thought of doing a proper button down shirt turns you off, then this is the perfect pattern. It’s easy to sew, and comfy to wear. I went with my husband’s chest measurements and didn’t make any adjustments, and it fit perfectly.

The only struggle I had was getting linen to lay flat. If I used another fabric I would have been finished in half the time.

Perfect Breeze Shirt for men.

I made a toile and this pattern is a perfect fit. Other than lengthening the short sleeves by 2 inches, needed no changes at all. The instructions are clear and I love the French seam finish. I enjoyed sewing it and my husband loves wearing it. It's exactly his preferred style. There will be several more 😃👍

Easy and Enjoyable sewing pattern

I thoroughly enjoyed this pattern. It was reasonably easy. Simple to follow instructions. My husband has been nagging me for a flowy shirt for a while and now he is requesting I make more.

A spot-on match for my partner's favourite shirt

I love this pattern. I've been looking for a pattern to replicate my partner's favourite breezy (!) shirt, which is getting quite tired. The Breeze is a great match and lovely to sew. I made two in quick succession. The fit is really good and he absolutely loves them. I like that it's constructed with French seams throughout, so it's really beautifully finished on the inside. Instructions are very clear, and the little details (like the bound side slits) are nice.

A Breeze to sew

The husband has been nagging me fo ages to sew something for him, and now he can match me and our daughter in our Breeze shirts.
Easy sew, great video tutorials, and lots of options - I can see quite a bunch of them in my husband's closet, because he really loves the first.

great pattern

the pattern is very well drafted. includes video tutorials for most steps, and written instructions with diagrams for grading - which I found very useful. the finishing is very professional, it looks store-bought. includes instructions for french seams. Can easily be made reversible with little hacking - one side would have a contrast facing.
My boyfriend loves it!

Family Breeze!

I was thrilled to sew up a Breeze for my husband. The fit is spot on and with his fair skin, it’s the perfect beach shirt. And now—we can all match!
