I’ve been mailing out a particularly large number of Fairfield Button-up Shirt patterns lately (and their PDF counterparts are selling in greater numbers than usual too)…after a peruse of the latest Fairfield projects on Instagram, I can see that many of you have wasted no time getting to work! Here are some of the most summery Fairfield’s you have all been making:
I like this monochrome take on a tropical short sleeve button-up made by Suzie.
Each summer, our Jedediah pants, or more specifically their shorts variation, crops up increasingly on social media. Here are some of the versions that have caught my eye!
Matt could really use a pair of Jedediah Shorts in this versatile blue- grey – he’s wearing his lime green ones daily right now! Nina sewed this pair for her husband and included my favourite detail from this pattern – the binding along the side seam.
Rumana made a slightly longer pair of Jed Shorts for her partner – I really like this flattering length and have seen a few pairs cut to just below knee lately. Also, note her lovely binding in the photo below:
Stephanie’s take on the Jedediah Shorts, above, are a little shorter than the pattern calls for and in fact, are similar in length to the pair that I made for Matt years ago…he wore those ones to pieces! This length is ideal for incredibly hot summer days.
To bookend this post with another wedding image, Jen made a dressy pair of wool Jedediah Pants for her partner, Nick. She slimmed down the legs a bit to suit this more formal style. She really nailed it!
Whether you are sewing a menswear outfit for a summer wedding or a trip to the beach, the classic lines of the Fairfield and the hybrid nature of the Jedediah Pants design mean you really only need one button-up and one trouser pattern for summer!
