Classic Button up Shirt for Boys, PDF sewing Pattern with Video Tutorial

This shirt comes from ages 1-2 right up to 12-14.

This super cool and urban inspired classic button down shirt is anything but run of the mill. It has a collar and collar stand, integrated front button placket, which makes it up to date and easier to sew too! The cuffs are buttoned and have the traditional gentleman's closure. If you thought that's too difficult then watch the video and think again. It’s easy if you know how!

The back yoke is lined with a contrast fabric and the back shirt has two pleats to allow for movement, making it comfortably loose with a longer curved back and shorter front. I love using contrast fabrics because they always add interest and also save on fabric cost. I usually have something suitable in my stash. I suppose most of you have much bigger ‘stashes’ judging by what I see on Facebook groups. So get in there find a match and experiment.

The shirt can be finished with buttons or snaps. There is a separate video showing you how to insert snaps too, so you don't have to worry about messing it up. I did use the snap setter tool for the snaps. It’s an awesome tool you should not be without. Recently I dug up a cheap alternative on Amazon too. Yes it takes 3 weeks to come but at 1/3 of the usual costs its one I wouldn’t miss out on.

Like all Frocks & Frolics sewing patterns, the Shirt includes easy-to-follow instructions with photos showing you how to sew each step plus the signature video tutorials.Just scroll down and start watching, you won’t be able to stop yourself making not one but a whole lot of cute & cool shirts.
