Go Team Hubby

Oct 17, 2021

I’m an awfully big fan of being able to sew for my husband, but I will say that he’s harder to sew for.  Besides when we are doing something specifically themed (theme party / Comic Con / Disney / etc), Bennett is totally a “plain shirt” kinda guy.  He prefers muted colors and less busy prints / no prints at all.  It makes sewing difficult for sure…or at least less exciting so I have a hard time heading to my machine to whip him something up, ha.  However, when I pulled this new Go Team Jersey off of my machine and showed it to him, I got an “I really like that” out of him.  So….just putting it out into the universe that even the pickiest of models will become easier to please eventually.

With this new Patterns for Pirates release, we had a set of FOUR patterns all launch at once.  The Go Team Jersey, Go Team Jersey - Youth, Go Team Dress + Go Team Dress - Youth.  The Go Team Jerseys are drafted using a “v-body” / men’s standard measurements…but is totally a great tee for all men, women and non-binary individuals alike.

The Go Team Jersey features:

  • Three necklines: Crew, V, Hooded.
  • Four sleeve lengths: Short, 3/4, Long Hemmed + Long Cuffed.
  • Three lengths: Tall, Average, Short.
  • Front + Back Yokes.
  • Optional Sleeve Stripes.

Bennett’s shirt here includes: vneck, tall length bodice (he carries more of his height in his torso), 3/4 length sleeves w/stripes.

I think the fit of this pattern is great.  It’s that perfect loose-but-not-too-loose silhouette and really goes with the sporty look we were after when designing the pattern.

Since we aren’t really a sporty-type family, there aren’t exactly any teams that we are looking to represent all the time.  But that doesn’t mean we don’t like certain looks and styles of patterns, and I really think this classic black and white color scheme is great on my guy.  Don’t you?

I mentioned it before with my Team Candy Corn top, but the vneck assembly on these shirts is so easy and quick that you’ll be wondering why you were ever afraid of assembling a neckline like this.  The neckband attaches to the neckline before the yokes are sewn to the bodice pieces, helping to avoid any of the fiddly aspects that vneck neckbands can sometimes bring.  You get the style of the v without the extra little hassle.  I think it’s an excellent beginner pattern for this reason alone!
