When I saw this breeze shirt from plus2is5 I knew I had to make it for my husband. During our holiday in Hawaii two years ago we bought a shirt like the breeze shirt and he loves it. So after a year he requested another one. I started looking for a pattern but found it difficult to search. So when I saw the breeze shirt pop up in my instagram I bought the Breeze shirt from Twig + Tale right away and sewed it up for Fathersday.
My husband loves it, it is nice and breezy. I made it in linen fabric that I bought at Textielstad. What makes the pattern great is the attention to detail. There is contrasting fabric in the hem and the back of the top of the bodice. Also the difference in length of the front and back bodice gives it such a professional look. The pattern also uses french seams, which was a first for me. So also the inside looks perfect.
My husband at first thought it was a big big on him, as he had to get used to the dropped shoulders. Let’s see how he feels after wearing it some time. It will be great when we are going to Italy for those summer evenings.
