This sailboat shirt is from the same Style pattern as last month's shirt, 3789. This one just has a single pocket. I love the little sailboat print so much. So much that I very carefully cut this shirt so there would be enough left for another for me!
The sleeves are full length, so he has the option to dress it up or down. Darron prefers a rolled up cuff to short sleeves as a general rule. A shirt has to be a very particular style for him to like short sleeves. I am trying to find the right style and fabric to meet with his approval for a short sleeved shirt.
Once again I used the Thread Theory Jedediah pants pattern. This time it's shorts in a mango coloured canvas I picked up from Ikea a couple of years ago.
The pockets are light grey poly-cotton and the seam allowances are bound with grey bias binding. After three pairs of Jeds, I'm getting a bit more proficient at their construction. It's still one of my very favourite patterns.
We went with the cuffed hems for a casual style. I like the way it shows off the neatly bound seam allowances. It's fantastic to be able to give Darron shorts that sit at the exact length he likes. It can be a struggle to get the length right in RTW shorts when you're a tall dude.
The shirt is a lovely lightweight fabric, so to protect his modesty, as well as for casual open-shirt wearing I made a plain white tee. This one is the plain tee option from the Tread Theory Strathcona pattern, in plain white cotton jersey. Every man's wardrobe needs a plain white tee or two!
A man of many skills and talents, Darron is can juggle all kinds of things, including hand knitted Christmas characters!
I think this is my favourite of Darron's outfits so far. It's bright and fun, and suits him perfectly.
Thanks for joining us while we put up our tree!
