I’ve been waiting for this for a while, because I knew it would happen eventually, and I’m really excited! That’s right, it’s a boy’s bundle! Boy sewing is seriously fun, and the patterns in the bundle all look awesome. *disclaimer: I received this pattern free for participating in the blog tour. All opinions are 100% mine*
For the bundle tour I made the Lumberjack Shirt from Patterns for Pirates. This is the first project I’ve sewn from this designer, but I would consider buying another pattern from her.
This pattern is perfect for layering. It’s meant to have a loose fit, and even comes with the option to be sewn with a lining and/or hood. For this project I have sewn the unlined collar option. I’ve already started on another shirt using the same options, but I definitely have plans to sew one with a hood and lining. These shirts make adorable jackets.
Look at that nice collar and back yoke. All in the instructions. I love when a pattern gives you the instructions on how to give your garment a nice finish. This shirt has a lot of top-stitching, and I finished all my inside seams with a serger.
Like I ‘sew’ often do, I used an old shirt of Nathan’s for Mack’s shirt. The best part: the flannel is already super soft and broken in. It’s going to be perfect for camping, and be great when the weather gets colder.
Mack is wearing his sleeves rolled up, but the sleeves are full length, and have a cuff with a button.
This bundle has some seriously fabulous patterns in it. I’m dying to get my hands on the P-51 jacket.Well, you should really just check out all the other stops on the tour so you can see all the patterns!
