Wo(men)'s Plaid Flannel Shirt

Thursday, January 1, 2015

If I look really awkward in these pictures it's because I was freezing. And also I guess I'm just an awkward person so there's that too. haha

I used McCall's M6044. I made this same shirt once before but this time around I made one for myself. I used a guys pattern because I wanted it to have an oversized fit and because I just already had the pattern on hand.

No yoke in the back which I was happy about while making the shirt but now I sort of wish it had one.

I do like how it turned out though. The fabric is from Joann's. I can't find it online or else I'd link to it but here's a really similar fabric by Robert Kaufman.

For once the buttonholes actually turned out really well! I always dread that part. Thank goodness for the button hole foot on Bernina's, it has saved me.

  1. I love this shirt so much Haylee! In fact I just bought two plaid fabrics for shirts or scarves. I have made this pattern as well and felt the same way about the back yoke. I found it looked like it was missing something after I made it for my husband. These pictures are gorgeous and I don't think that you look awkward at all!

    1. Exactly! That's exactly how I feel about it, like something is missing and it's driving me crazy. It makes it look more homemade too or something which I don't like. Ugh oh well, anyways thanks though Margo!! This was really nice of you to say.

  3. That shirt looks so great! I love it on you, and the fabric is perfect. Ugh, and I hate doing button holes too. That's always the part I try to pawn off on my mom, ha!

  6. I bought this exact fabric with the intention of sewing it into an Archer. Your shirt is making me antsy to get home and get started. :-D Great work on the shirt. And, your photos are gorgeous.

    1. No way? I totally was going to make it into an Archer originally too! haha great minds think alike, The only reason I went with this one was because I already had it/am cheap and didn't want to spend money. haha I bet it will make such a cute Archer though, I can't wait to see it!

  12. Oh I love the shirt a lot and I love these photos too - snowy awesomeness. It is a bit weird that the shirt doesn't have a back yoke; I don't think I've ever seen that on a RTW men's shirt (though my husband says he has one maybe...?).

    Replies
    1. I know me neither I don't think! That's what is driving me crazy because anything that sets handmade vs RTW is not a good thing in my book- I want it to look like I bought it gosh darn it. haha oh well, now I just know to add a yoke next time.
      Thanks for commenting Kristin!

    1. Ahh Ingrid you don't know how much this means to me, thank you!! I've really been trying to make a better effort with my photography lately so for you to say that really means a lot. Seriously thank you.
      And you totally should, we can be twinners! Aside from that, I've seriously worn this shirt all the time because it's so warm and comfy. You won't regret it. :)

  16. Did you SERIOUSLY MAKE THIS!!!!!! It looks so amazing! I am really in shock (i mean not shocked you can make it but seriously, it's awesome) Also these pictures are really beautiful, good idea. The back round looks so pretty with your shirt and who did you hair?? I LOVE IT! I've tried to pull off that hairstyle but it never looks that good on me. OK I'll stop now haha.

    1. Sadie I freaking love you! This comment meant a lot to me thank you. :) And my mom! Of course, if my hair is in any other hair style aside from a messy bun you can probably guess that my mom did my hair. haha! We need to teach each other how to do it, or at least I can try and teach you because to be honest I'm not sure I could do it with my one hand. But I could maybe do it on you!? Well have to try it.

    1. Ugh I have had the worst luck with this! It looks fine in my browser but I did notice how small it was when on my moms computer so I'm not sure what the deal is. Ugh and then when I go to change it it looks too big on my computer so I'm not sure what to do. Oh well, thanks for telling me though. I'll try and fix it but I promise you're not missing out on much. haha I tend to just ramble on about useless stuff anyways. :) haha

  39. Party Wear Shirts for men are one of the most essential items in a man’s wardrobe. They are available in multiple designs, fits and colors that with all the choice out there, it sometimes gets a tad too difficult to choose men shirts. Having said that, the next time you are planning to buy a shirt
