Mad About Plaid! “Men’s Flannel Shirt” Style Post

It’s definitely flannel season! With that being said, my hubby has been wanting me to make him a shirt since forever. So, I decided to make him a nice cozy, rustic plaid flannel. Perfect for Fall if I do say so myself.

Here’s what I used:

Simplicity Pattern #1544BB-Option D Men’s Shirt.

This shirt actually took me a couple of days to complete because it is so detailed. This is my first attempt at menswear and I’m pretty pleased with the outcome.

I added a contrast denim-like chambray to the button placket, underside of the pockets, back tab, and under-collar. The contrast really brings out the blue in the pattern. This flannel is super soft and feels really yummy! The look was completed with a waffle thermal layered underneath.

Mood Fabrics has so many great plaids to choose from if you’re looking to make something similar. I think I’ll be making myself one pretty soon.

Enjoy!

 It's all in the details! Front pockets cut on the bias, top stitched and pleated.
