Men's shirt, Simplicity 9499 size Medium

This past Friday I got a nice stash of fabric for shirts for the men in my life. I made Simplicity's 9499 for Men, size medium. I chose the nice blue knit. It is soft and fuzzy, like a nice soft blanket. Simon is in dire need of shirts for work. He works in construction and they tend to take a beating. Let's hope this size is good and he likes it. I have a lot more fabric to make shirts.

 I had made this pattern for Tyler and he loves it. The men's pattern is exactly the same, only larger.
The pattern is simple, straightforward and easy to assemble. This is a basic "baseball style" shirt. Now I still don't have my serger, it's coming. But when I do, this pattern will sew in mere minutes.

I cut out a man's medium and a boy's small. I have about 4 meters of this fabric for all of us to have matching shirts. 

The length of the arms and body are perfect for Simon, no adjustments needed. Good thing too, as this was a surprise and I hemmed it without taking measurements. He is so proud! The first thing he said when he put it on was that it was soft

  1. Very nice Jennifer! I have this pattern too and just made the muslin for my husband. Glad to see someone else using it too! Tell your hubby it looks very nice on him and he should have a few more in different colors!
