I am super excited to share the FIRST EVER garment that I made for my husband – a Pendleton Wool flannel button-up! My husband already owns a brown plaid ready-to-wear Pendleton flannel, and he asked me to make him one that is handmade by me! Not to mention, more cost effective as we only have to pay for the cost of fabric, thread, and buttons.
I am OBSESSED with Pendleton Wool fabric. If you remember my previous post sharing my DIY Pendleton Wool Cape, I dropped a solid amount of money at the Pendleton Woolen Mills booth at the Sewing & Stitchery Expo this past March. Well, I was on the hunt for wool flannel fabric. The flannel Gods answered my prayers that day, and presented me with 3 perfect yards of the most gorgeous blue and grey fabric for his shirt! I used the Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop Yukon Button Up Pattern. This pattern is definitely going to be a Tried-and-True pattern for our household. I will use this pattern over and over again and fill Zach’s closet with a million flannels.
To be honest, I was so scared to make a garment for someone other than myself. But after making his shirt, I’m hooked! In the end, my husband was super happy with his shirt and he has worn it every week since it came off the machine. I can’t wait to make more for his wardrobe!
