Men’s Shirt Patterns

Monkey1961 | Posted in Patterns on

Does anyone have a Mens Shirt Pattern they can recommend for a basic mans dress shirt?  Most of the shirt patterns I find are more like a camp shirt, and I want something I can wear a tie with, and adjust the sleeve length to my needs.


Thank You

    Check out the Kwik Sew Pattern below.......is that what you're looking for??  I have made Kwik Sew shirts for sons and hubby.  Nice patterns without a lot of frills....just basic pieces that fit together nicely.  I have not used this particular pattern but another for flannel shirts.......long sleeves, pocket, collar stand, etc.

    The dress shirts are designed for lightweight woven fabric such as cotton, cotton types, oxford cloth, broadcloth or chambray.

    The dress shirts have a left front tab, double yoke, a collar with a collar stand, patch pocket and a shirt-tail hemline. View A has long sleeves with cuffs and sleeve plackets. View B has short hemmed sleeves.

    My husbands favorite shirt came from Simplicity pattern 9469.  He likes it for that reason Its not "campshirt" like.  It is more on the fitted side and has a tie and trouser pattern in it too.

    How about copying one of your well-fitting shirts?  Do check out the David Coffin video in these threads - he makes it easy to do!  I have copied shirts for my son (he's 6'5" & has a 35" sleeve) & they turned out very well, & I still use the patterns (although my copying was long before David Coffin showed his, & his is much easier).  When I bought a pattern for the first shirt, I found that it took a lot of alterations, but copying the shirts saved me all of that. Good luck!

      If I had the time and a well fitting shirt, I would!  I have read David Coffins book, and love it!  But I have lost a good deal of weight, and have not found a good fit to date, but I guess I will have to adapt. 

      Thank You for your ideas

        How wonderful that you lost so much weight!  That certainly does throw your body shape out of whack, though.  Try the Kwik Sew pattern, as other posters really like it.  It might make sense to take the time to make yourself a body double with tape or saran, as mentioned recently in these threads (unless you are still losing weight).  They certainly help with fitting issues.  With Coffin's book & all the extra help, you should be successful soon.  Good luck!

    I have made the Kwik Sew 2777 for my husband and it is a good pattern. It does not have a close fitting body like some of the current styles, but it isn't loose like a camp shirt either. Hope this helps.

    Take a look at these men's shirt patterns.  They are expensive! ($20) but they come with some really great directions that enable you to make a professional looking product.
