    Fairfield Shirt (PDF version)

    Posted by Celeste on 5th Mar 2020

    A very good pattern - the print-at-home version was fairly easy to assemble, and the instructions are very clear and comprehensive, breaking the process down into lots of small steps, and with lots of fitting advice. A good pattern for someone who is new to sewing shirts, and there are free extra options (short sleeves, alternate pockets, etc) on the Thread Theory website, as well as a sew-along which is even more comprehensive than the instructions! My only quibble is that the pattern is designed specifically for felled seams, with offset seam allowances to reduce trimming, but I found lining up the different seam allowances at least as time-consuming as the usual seam felling method (especially when setting the sleeves). I can see how it might be helpful to those who are new to felled seams, though. On the plus side, the pattern contains alternate pattern pieces for men with a bit of a belly, which is a nice touch, as it takes into account the differences in men's body shapes.
