Pattern Review: Mccall's 2149 (Easy Men's Shirt)

Flavia Giuzio

Hi everyone!!

I recently sewn a Hawaiian shirt as a birthday gift for my husband!! We went to Hawaii for vacation in September and I (obviously) dragged my hubby to the Fabric Mart in Maui. While at the store he picked the fabric that I used for this shirt. This is my first time sewing a shirt and it was SUCH easier than I expected and I also learned a new technique (notched collar). My husband also loved the skirt and said it reminds him of the beautiful island of Maui. So here is my PATTERN REVIEW:

20171217_173240-ANIMATION.gif

Pattern Description: 
 Shirt has front patch pocket, side seam slits and button-down closure. A, B, C: Notched collar. A, D, F: Long sleeves with buttoned cuffs. B, C, E, G: Short sleeves. D, E: Stand-up collar. F, G: Collarless. C: Contrast collar and patch pocket. SEWING LEVEL: Advanced beginner. 

Pattern Sizing: I bought pattern size Large but ended up having to adjust the side seams and sleeves a couple of inches.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes! I chose view B (with notched collar) and I loved the result. 

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. Overall the instructions were pretty clear. I had never done a notched collar before but the instructions where very clear.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I really liked the pattern. No problems!


Fabric Used: For this shirt I used a cotton with a Hawaiian print that I got at FabricMart in Maui for less than $2 dollars a yard. 

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I took in a couple of inches from the side seams and sleeves to create a slimmer cut, which is what my husband preferes. I also had to adjust the size of the notched collar.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes! I will definitely be making another version of this shirt. It was a quick project and my husband really loved this handmade gift!!

Hope you enjoyed the pattern review, the post and the pics!!

Please comment and let me know what you think!

See you next time my loves!
