Boys Shirt Sewing Pattern:

This boys shirt sewing pattern runs from ages 1-2 right up to 12-14.

This super cool and urban inspired classic button down boys shirt sewing pattern is anything but run of the mill. It has a collar and collar stand, integrated front button placket, which makes it up to date and easier to sew too! The cuffs are buttoned and have the traditional gentleman's closure. If you thought that's too difficult then watch the video and think again. It’s easy if you know how!

The back yoke is lined with a contrast fabric and the back shirt has two pleats to allow for movement, making it comfortably loose with a longer curved back and shorter front. I love using contrast fabrics because they always add interest and also save on fabric cost. I usually have something suitable in my stash. I suppose most of you have much bigger ‘stashes’ judging by what I see on Facebook groups. So get in there find a match and experiment.

The boys shirt sewing pattern can be finished with buttons or snaps. There is a separate video showing you how to insert snaps too, so you don't have to worry about messing it up. I did use the snap setter tool for the snaps. It’s an awesome tool you should not be without. Recently I dug up a cheap alternative on Amazon too. Yes it takes 3 weeks to come but at 1/3 of the usual costs its one I wouldn’t miss out on.

Video Tutorials:

Like all Frocks & Frolics sewing patterns, the boys shirt sewing pattern includes easy-to-follow instructions with photos showing you how to sew each step plus the signature video tutorials.Just scroll down and start watching, you won’t be able to stop yourself making not one but a whole lot of cute & cool shirts.

Shirt pattern review

Posted by Rose Scott on Aug 3rd 2018
I love this pattern. I have made several shirts for my grandson and each time my daughter is asked where to buy the shirt! The pattern design is so well thought out. The video is incredibly helpful and the end result is amazing. I am looking forward to making more shirts for my grandson as he grows.

I adore your patterns and have bought others from you. They are really, really well put together, the fit is perfect and the videos have incredible detail. Every step shown so clearly that you cannot get it wrong. I am still making the Natalie dresses for friend's children, they love them, I have never made a boys shirt before so, although I am a bit nervous I know that I will be fine as I have you helping me step by step. Thank you so much.

Can't say enough good things about this pattern, everything fits perfectly together, you are better than IKEA (what is almost not possible :-) ... ) Demonstration all of the steps in your videos is very helpful.

Amazing attention to detail

Posted by Celiah Ann on Jan 14th 2018
I was incredibly impressed by the attention to detail that went into this pattern as well as the tutorial video on YouTube. It was so much fun to sew and for the size range and quality of pattern the prize is incredibly affordable. This is the first but by no means the last Frocks and Frolicks pattern I will sew. Thank you for such an incredible product!

Thankyou for a fabulous pattern and video tutorial. I really enjoyed making this shirt and the fit is perfection. The video tutorial is very thorough and extremely helpful. Will be making many more of these. I love all of your patterns but this one was special. I have no hesitatation in recommending this pattern to anyone wanting to make a professional looking shirt.

Hands down the best place to learn to sew children's clothing, the video support is fantastic! The designs do not look like a beginner project and are finished inside beautifully.

I have only recently started sewing. I purchased a pattern from Spotlight and I was so confused! This pattern is so easy to follow, I love the fact that there is written instructions and videos on You Tube. I have successfully made a shirt for my son following this pattern :)
