And we’re back with the other selfless sewing project that I finished this Fall!

This Tropical Shirt has been finished since October, but it quickly got chillier here, so Dallas hasn’t had a chance to wear it. Today was miraculously in the 60s, and he was very excited to wear it with shorts.

I made his first Tropical Shirt in 2020 out of a cotton/linen, and he really liked the style and fit. This time, I made it out of a washed cotton poplin. Dallas is 6’6″, so I added 2″ to the length and made the largest size with no other modifications. It does look a little bit large on him since he’s been running, and I probably should have retaken his measurements, but he doesn’t mind.

For shirts in this style, I almost always follow the construction process of the Willamette Shirt. It just makes more sense to me, and I love the way everything gets so nicely enclosed. I still followed the beginning and end instructions for this pattern, and they are very well done.

Although I had better intentions of finishing it before summer ended, Dallas is still very happy to have it now. Happy sewing! xoxo

  1. Nice job, Tori! Dallas’s shirt looks great on him. I love that your talent for sewing has not overtaken your life, but blends nicely into your adventurous family life. Blessings to you!

    1. Thank you, Grandma! I fit it in when I can, but don’t make myself feel bad when I can’t. It feels like a good amount most of the time and I love it too. 🙂
