Y’all life has been crazy. I haven’t posted since Halloween. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been sewing! I had the pleasure of testing the Draper Polo from Wardrobe by Me and I loved doing it. My husband thinks I spend too much on fabric but he was pretty excited that I made him something that he would actually wear!
The fit came out perfect. The hardest part for me was the front button placket and the collar but with some patience and seam ripping I finally got the look I wanted.
I also love that the side seam has a vent. I felt like it made the polo look “less homemade”. Not that homemade is bad but I like when those little details that you find on store bought clothes are included in a pattern.
The fabric I used was this Pique from fabric.com and I love the way it feels. It reminds me of his athletic feeling golf shirts that breathe well and aren’t too hot.
He has worn it several times so that is a huge compliment to me – especially since it’s winter here!! I was super excited for this sew and hope to make him more in the future!
