I love sewing for my son! He appreciates each thing that I make for him. This shirt was no exception. Marc is a shirt pattern for boys created by Filles à Maman. The shirt calls for knit fabric for the shirt front, back, and sleeves. The collar, facing, placket, and shoulders use woven fabric and interfacing.
A couple weeks ago we were out rummaging and I had my husband purchase this polo shirt. It was a men's XL and he was like, "Who is that for?" I smiled and said, "It's only a dollar and I can cut it down to fit Caden." I didn't actually have any pattern in mind for the shirt, until I met Marc.
Marc is such a fabulous shirt to sew. The collar is off-set and the placket buttons up on the side. I love the unique take on what would otherwise be an ordinary polo shirt. And at last that rummage sale find has found a new purpose!
Look at how happy he is and how handsome he looks in his new shirt!
KAM snap hand-held press. I was a little bit nervous that I might ruin the entire shirt, but I didn't. I have not had any success using a snap press in that past, but with my KAM snap hand-held press, the snaps attached to the shirt so easily. Now I'm looking for another project just so I can use my KAM snaps again!
You can purchase the Marc pattern this week for a special introductory price. Be sure to visit Filles à Maman to get your copy! Marc is available for boys size 12 months-14. I'm pretty sure I'll be making more!
