Fairfield Button-Up Shirt
Thread Theory Designs

$20.00 each

The Fairfield Button-up is a shirt with all of the classic details and a modern, moderately slim fit.  This design features a slim collar with collar stand, an optional chest pocket, flat felled seams, and a yoke.  The button band is drafted onto the shirt front to make matching plaids and stripes simple.  The hem is curved so that this shirt can be worn tucked in or loose.  The sleeves include tower plackets and the option for a hidden tab so that they can be rolled and secured at the elbow.  Choose between a center back pleat or create a more fitted look with long shaped darts.

The Fairfield pattern includes both the original drafting block sizing for slim to average figures, and a separate set of pattern pieces for larger figures to accommodate a rounded stomach.

This pattern, as part of the “Cityscape Urban Menswear Collection” by Thread Theory Designs, is an elegant silhouette accented with modern design elements.  Sew the garments in this collection to create a polished wardrobe suitable for the professional lifestyle or formal occasions.

The pattern envelope contains a tissue copy of the pattern in sizes XS to 4XL, a 21 page staple bound illustrated instruction booklet that lays flat while sewing, an embroidered Thread Theory garment tag, and a chip board pattern folder with string closure, which is simple to use and sturdy enough to store your patterns for years to come.

Thread Theory Designs is a Canadian pattern company, and was launched in 2012 by Morgan and Matt Meredith with the aim to bring menswear to the forefront of the DIY fashion movement.
