Here’s a great chance to use a wonderful pattern to make a lumberjack shirt for your boy so that he can look like dad. You can make up this pattern in a number of ways:
a traditional unlined shirt with collar, any fabric including warm flannel as shown
a fully lined shirt for extra warmth, or to wear it open like a light jacket over a t-shirt for a cool and trendy look
option to change up the collar for a hood! So now it can be worn as a light hoodie shirt or a warm hooded jacket with cozy lining.
This pattern is perfect for an intermediate sewer to make a comfortable and cosy lumberjack shirt in fifteen different sizes from 3 months up to 14 years old. This one pattern could last you 14 years and create a whole wardrobe of options for shirts, hoodies, jackets and coats. We think that’s excellent value.
When making this awesome shirt you will have various options as follows:
Separate cuff pieces mean you can mix it up with a contrast cuff when they’re rolled up. Perfect for adding that character fabric he loves, but keeping it nice on the outside
Being able to fully line the shirt, which makes it a wonderful layering piece for fall and winter months. Or leave it unlined in cotton for the spring and summer time
Have a classic collar and collar stand
And add a very fun hood (what boys don’t LOVE a hood).
