This is another unisex pattern that has several different design options for pockets, sleeves, and hems. It also has some great features such as a back yoke (perfect for contrast fabrics), button placket, a collar with stand that, when completed, has a professional looking finish on the inside of your garment. Even if you’ve never made a shirt like this before, the instructions and photos were very helpful at guiding you through the construction process. The fit was spot on as well – this design works well stand-alone or with a tee underneath (I’m thinking we need a simple version of the Adventure Tee next time).
Even though the name says “Bookworm”, I think our finished shirt says anything but! Easton and I collaborated on this one and selected a fun, flame print (I will admit, I buy this material a lot when I am at the store, I’ve found so many uses for this fabric) for the lower pockets, placket, collar, and back yoke giving it a retro rock & roll vibe (or something Guy Fieri might wear). This has easily become his favorite shirt to wear and I see lots of miles coming out of this pattern.
Be sure to check out all the patterns available in this package (along with the fun Make Believe e-book full of patterns and activities you can do with your kids) and then come back tomorrow and see what we sewed up next!
