Colette patterns does not disappoint with their men’s shirt pattern. As far as garment making goes it sews up fairly quick thanks to the omission of plackets and collar stands. A warm and cozy flannel would make this shirt seasonally appropriate. Be sure to allot extra time and yardage if you decide to work with a plaid fabric. Success with plaids demands a strategic eye in order to (or in hopes to) properly line up or match your fabric’s particular plaid pattern. It ain’t so hard, just an extra and careful step.
I am imagining my sweetie opening his present on Christmas morning - a long sleeve plaid flannel Negroni adorned with pearlized snaps, yeah! In reality, he will probably end up with a bottle of bourbon. We will see. In the meantime, happy sewing to all and to all a good stitch!!!
