THREAD THEORY • Fairfield Button-Up Shirt Sewing Pattern
Men's button-up shirt with all of the classic details and a modern, moderately slim fit.
This design features a slim collar with collar stand, an optional chest pocket, flat felled seams and a yoke. The button band is drafted onto the shirt front to make matching plaids and stripes simple. The hem is curved so that this shirt can be worn tucked in or loose. The sleeves include tower plackets and the option for a hidden tab so that they can be rolled and secured at the elbow. Choose between a centre back pleat or create a more fitted look with long shaped darts.
The Fairfield includes regular sizing for slim to average figures and a separate set of pieces for larger figures to accommodate a rounded stomach.
This is a multi-size paper pattern for XS to 4XL.
