The Men's Shirt Maker's Express pattern is the perfect basic shirt with a modern fit, destined to be your "go-to" shirt pattern. With just a few options, Shirt Maker's Express will transform from a dress shirt made from fine Italian cotton shirting, to a comfortable sports shirt by using a cotton/linen plaid and even a casual over shirt when you choose corduroy or chambray. Optional back darts help give the wearer a trim look. Other options include cutting the Cuffs, Sleeve Plackets and the Yoke on the bias of plaids, stripes or checks to give added interest. Choose monochromatic thread for the dress shirt style and try contrasting topstitching on a sport or casual shirt.
