    Darling Murray requires new clothes and seeing as I’m constantly sewing for the kids, he is getting quite upset that nothing is made for him. Well, telling him to get in line isn’t helping as I go without also, but, I have decided to make him some nice dress shirts and possibly shorts for Christmas and now is perfect seeing as he is out of the house for the majority of the day harvesting.

    Can anyone recommend and really great Man’s dress shirt and possibly a nice shorts pattern please?

    It would make a really nice surprise come Christmas morning.

    Good question, Tamara– I’ve been looking for a great men’s shirt pattern, too! My husband has had several tailored shirts made (he wears shirt & tie for work)and it irks me to think of the money we could save if I had a good pattern that provided professional results (like the fab patterns that Liesl creates). Any suggestions out there?

    I haven’t used this pattern but several of the ladies who sew O+S have: http://www.colettepatterns.com/shop/negroni

    Here’s the links to their shirts:

    Peter Lappin of Male Pattern Boldness will review some vintage men’s patterns now and again, and he hosted a men’s shirt sew-a-long a while back, that should have some good patterns in it. http://www.flickr.com/groups/1608093@N23/

    I own the Negroni, but have failed to keep a large enough piece of fabric in my stash that my husband considers worthy. But the directions look great, and straight forward.

    Some of the people I know in the Pacific Northwest swear by Islander Sewing Systems, and Pamela from http://off-the-cuff-style.blogspot.com/ will use some of the patterns from time to time. (She gives some pattern reviews here-http://off-the-cuff-style.blogspot.com/search/label/Patterns and some tips for modifying them.)

    I like the look of the negroni pattern. I’ll see if I can locate it and maybe get hold of one.

    Any other suggestions are also greatly appreciated.
