  • Gentleman's Wardrobe

    The Gentleman's Wardrobe is a really great new book that we just got in on the third floor of our brick-and-mortar store. It includes patterns for shirts, a waistcoat, trousers, a jacket, boxer shorts, pajamas, slippers, a messenger bag, a wallet, a bow tie, a cap, and more. With each project it includes suggested fabrics and color photos of finished garments for men, as well as tools and other sewing resources. The Gentleman's Wardrobe is written by Vanessa Mooncie, and was just published this year. So often people have come in asking us for patterns for men's clothing, and this is a great place to start. Be sure to come in and check it out, and keep an eye out for the new patterns we just ordered for men's vests, pants, shirts, and more, arriving soon!
