MY JOURNEY INTO DIY MEN’S SHIRTS

MY JOURNEY INTO DIY MEN’S SHIRTS

Hello LOVELIES!
In this blog post, I share with you my makes for my husband. Looking back to December, 2017 when I first made a men’s shirt, I see how much I have improved. I am so glad I took up the challenge because I realise now that some of the mistakes I made along the line have helped me to get better at drafting and sewing for men. The first shirt I made for him had a simple round neck and zipper closure in front. When I made this shirt, the idea was just for me to try out something new. It didn’t come out that great but it wasn’t a complete disaster. My husband in his usual supportive nature wore it to pose for our family picture. The shirt is pictured below (him holding our daughter).

Afterwards, I made him this Dashiki shirt, which turned out better than the first.

And then, I took up the courage to make this African traditional shirt pictured below.

And of course the latest of many more to come is this classic button-up shirt made from African Kente print. This shirt, like the others above, was made from a self-drafted pattern and it features a collar, and a back yoke.
