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:
- 3yds of Red/Blue/Brown/White Plaid Cotton Flannel: Product #308634 from MoodFabrics.com
- 1 yd of Blue Denim-like Cotton Chambray: Product # 308653 from MoodFabrics.com
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.
