I also made him a Negroni and the boys gave him some chocolate.
Here's my first attempt at a Negroni.
This is a size XL. Many will say it is too big and not fitted enough but this is how he likes his shirts. He hates feeling restricted. Plus I am not a huge fan of very fitted shirts. He asked me to copy the sizing of a fave Ben Sherman shirt which was very helpful during the construction process. Next time I will make the next size down just to see. I'm hoping for a nice crisp cotton.
Pattern: Negroni by Colette Patterns
Fabric: Some kind of blended shirting from The Fabric Store
Alterations: Shortened sleeves by 7.5cm and hem by 4cm.
Mr Sew Brunswick is very happy with his new shirt and I think he's pleasantly surprised with the final shirt. He's wearing it today!
Happy Father's Day!
