Most of my sewing tends to be for my girls and me, but I am trying to change that. I am always on the look out for mens sewing patterns, so that I can make more things for my husband. After sewing a few of the Wardrobe by Me patterns for myself (this dress, and this shirt), I decided to try some for my husband. I made him a Bram Raglan and some Rebel Sweatpants.
For the Bram raglan, I used some cotton spandex knit from Girl Charlee. This was an easy sew, and I did not have to make any modifications to the pattern, which is always nice! This black and white raglan will be a good addition to my husbands wardrobe.
To go along with his raglan, I made him some Rebel Sweatpants. I used a french terry fabric from Jo-Ann fabrics, and my husband really likes the feel of french terry. As I am sewing more clothes for him, I am trying to figure out what fabrics he likes the best. The Rebel sweatpants are another easy sew, with great results. My husband has been wearing these a lot when he gets home from work.
I like that the Rebel pattern has pockets in it. I used some black thread as a fun detail in the topstitching, and while it is a little difficult to see in the pictures, I really like this added detail.
I am really happy with both of these patterns, and so is my husband. The Rebel pattern can also be made as shorts, and I am planning on making some in shorts length soon.
Here are his new clothes in action. They are comfortable for lounging around the house, or for a game of basketball.
Fabric: Grey French Terry from Jo-Ann Fabrics for the sweatpants, black and white cotton spandax knit from Girl Charlee for the raglan shirt.
