Men's Tropical Shirt

The Men's Tropical Shirt from Wardrobe by Me Patterns is a men's casual short sleeve button up. Pattern chest range from 27.5" to 49.5".

This pattern is perfect to make with the wide array of quilting cottons we offer. It features a double yoke and convertible collar. It includes side slits, two back pleats and a front pocket.

In this class, you will learn how to read the pattern and review the construction tips and tricks and choose the elements of shirt. You will learn the technique of working with yokes, collars and button holes. You will have a wide array of quilting cotton to choose from to make your shirt. Based on how quickly we are able to get through pattern tracing and cutting, we may have an opportunity to start construction in class. 

PLEASE NOTE: Students will have additional sewing tasks that will need to be completed outside of class. If you find yourself struggling with construction after class, you may take this class again. While students are cutting out their patterns in class, the instructor is available to assist with any questions you may have in completing your project.
