ISO patterns for men's button-up shirts AND jeans [both high-end, w/detail]
2 years ago
Can y’all suggest some good quality patterns for men’s button-ups (that use stand-collar), and a high-end pattern for jeans (with high-end details)?
Thank you!!2 years agowith love Heidi @with love Heidi2 years ago
I considered the Negroni, but it’s unfortunately a camp shirt collar; I need something more formal.
I’ll check out the jeans!!2 years ago
The Jedediah are seriously nice Rebecca http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2015/08/jedediah-baby.html
I also like this KwikSew pattern http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2013/02/jeans-for-hugo.html

@rebecca if you can follow diagrams and don’t have a very tall/big bloke then this book of shirt patterns would be the bomb!
There’s every collar/cuff/style combination imaginable.

Sorry Rebecca, I didn’t know what a camp collar was. Now I’ve learned something new 🙂2 years agoReeni @Reeni

@nicole Thanks; those Jedediah jeans do look nice!! The KwikSew pattern may be discontinued (at least directly from their site).
My hubby is barrel-chested, so I need to stick to patterns that offer larger sizes! But, I really do want to make him some nice, tailored dress shirts. (The Burda nor Japanese book don’t go to his size — darn!). I’d really like to find one with tailored details.2 years agoJess M. @mommy2maria
I saw a blog today that added a stand collar to the negroni!2 years agoTamara @justsewit
Hi Rebecca, my husband requires a larger size also. I found this pattern https://jalie.com/jalie2111-mens-shirts-pdf-pattern-381. Not a camp collar but it looks similar to the sketchbook and the size range is huge so it is bound to be able to fit!
Unfortunately it is only available as a pdf BUT I can attest to the fact that the Jalie pdf patterns are easy to put together and you will have an amazing result – I have many. The instructions are both in English and French. However, if you use the skills you have learned from the sketchbook pattern, you will find these (somewhat vague) instructions a lot easier to understand and of course you will obtain a pleasing result.
So I encourage you to have a look at this pattern and give it a shot. They actually have quite a few men’s patterns so you never know, it might be the start of some very pleasant sewing projects for your husband to wear.

I own a paper copy of the Jalie 2111 shirt pattern, it ranges from baby to large adult, and I have made several shirts for all three men in the he house, starting with the 2 yr size and going up to collar size 39 . I should warn you it is a very loose fit , being a drop shouldered shirt rather than a dress shirt. But it has a very good collar with stand and I usually only have to alter the shoulder part to make the shirt fit.
But it’s still a lot of work before you get to the fun part, that is the sewing, so you may want to look for another pattern. You can see some of the shirts I made using this pattern in my flickr album Sewing for boys https://m.flickr.com/#/photos/deepathomas/sets/72157629179776237/
Hope this helps. I currently use Kwiksew 2000 for my husband’s shirts. Thus is also a loose fit , unfortunately and does need some alterations usually . I have the boy’s Kwiksew 2973 that Nicole mentioned, in sizes 3-7 yrs. It is fabulous. Except for the 0.5 inch seam allowance, grr!
You could try searching for vintage shirt patterns as well.

My husband is pretty chunky and I make this shirt for him
http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2015/04/jedediah-for-jed.html I do add length and last time I shortened the ‘tails’.
I just finished this shirt for him it has a two piece collar and sleeve placket.
I have seen it listed on eBay and Esty. The oversized 80’s look accommodates a full tummy well.2 years ago
The Kwik Sew shirt seam allowance is 0.25 inches, not 0.5 inches. That was a typing error. Someone may have wondered why I was so worked up about a half inch seam allowance !2 years ago2 years ago
