Breeze shirt

Already weeks ago, Twig and Tale released the Breeze shirt*. I sewed up one during testing, but I never came around to posting about it. I was planning to sew a second and post about both of them, but I still have not come around to sewing the second one yet. But, seeing that the weather is improving, I wanted to show you the pattern, because I think it is the perfect summer woven sew for boys (but it is also obviously possible for girls as well)

The pattern is designed to be worn on warm days, and to cover sensitive skin against the sun. It therefore has long sleeves, but the pattern has optional sleeves tabs, such that you can easily keep the sleeves rolled up. If you know that your child will never wear long sleeves, but you can also simply sew the short sleeve option.

I sewed the shirt in a naturally wrinkled very light weighted cotton. It was a remnant from Textielstad so I do not know what the fabric is exactly. The pattern has no exposed seams, it has French and enclosed seams, making it super comfortable to wear. Although it has a perfect finish, it is still a rather easy and quick sew.

The shirt just pulls over the head, there is no closure (which makes it a much easier sew than a button up shirt). To make wearing it extra comfortable it has a relaxed fit. For this first version, I actually decided to make our son one size smaller than he should wear according to the size table, because he is often does not like oversized pieces. But, I could have just gone with his regular size, he says it is very comfortable also if it would be a bit wider.

Feel free to leave a comment in the language you prefer (although Google translate might have to assist me if you choose something different than English, German, Dutch or Hungarian). If you buy anything through my affiliate links (*), I get a small commission (the price stays the same for you), I am very grateful for everything that feeds my fabric addiction.
