NEW pattern! Introducing the MENS Bowling shirt!


We are so very excited to announce our latest pattern release! the MENS bowling shirt pattern
This pattern picks up where the kids bowling shirt pattern leaves off The sizes included in this pattern and the measurements are: 

Chest Measurement Size (around)
XXS - 30” - 32”
XS - 32½” - 35”
S - 35½” - 38”
M - 38½” - 41”
L - 41½” - 45”
XL - 45½” - 49”
2XL - 49½”- 53”

The Bowling Men's Bowling Shirt has the same options as the kids for creating a shirt all from one fabric for more of a "camp shirt" look, or pieced from multiple fabrics! The placket, sleeves and collar can all be made from contrasting fabrics as well, giving unlimited mixing and matching options. The front and back of the shirt are great for appliques or machine embroidery to personalize.  Each step is described in detail and fully illustrated in the same great quality as our other patterns. One of the other AMAZING features in this pattern is the placket construction - You won't have to toss the whole short if you oops on the buttonholes!

Now who wants to see some of the testers versions? 

Jeanine's husband politely posing to show off his unlined bowling shirt:

Cathy's husband in his tropical style shirt:

Holly also made a tropical style for her husband, in fact, I hear he picked out his own fabrics even for this shirt and two more!

Kimberly's was worn to an actual bowling game! 

Crystal picked out the fabric for her husband's shirt! I love this fun fabric!

 Nancy made the bowling shirt for her son, I love the contrast in the front and on the collar!

 Sheri went for a solid look and I mist say I am impressed by her lining up skills!

 Sheri also made her husband a bowling shirt!

Sumi used this lovely yellow check on hers, it shows off the details so well! 

Sunni was a busy sewist making shirts for her daughter and son! (and doesn't Sunni look pretty in her daughter's shirt too!)

I love the back piecing options she took advantage of!

Tomi made her husband one in this very fun themed print! 

Natalie sized her husband's bowling shirt down for a closer fit 

and Tera did some great colour blocking on hers! 

and of course, some of the husbands had a little fun with the picture taking! 

This pattern is truly a wonderful option for sewing for the men in your life! So many great options to get a unique looking shirt every time you sew it, or keep it solid for a simple statement shirt! 

Oh, and did I mention there is a buttonhole template? There is !!!! No guessing or getting out the measuring tape needed to get your buttons on right where they should be!

Who will you be sewing the bowling shirt for?
