Basic Men’s T-shirt Pattern



From XS-5XL

Hi guys, hope you all are doing well.

I’ve been sharing many patterns for ladies, coz as always “Ladies first!”. But today, I will share with you a pattern for our gentlemen, for a very basic piece of clothing that every man needs in their “humble” closet – a classic T-shirt.

It’s time to show them our love and care for them. Let’s get cracking!

What sewing supplies do I need to start sewing

Which fabric to choose to make your T-Shirt?

You might be wondering what kind of fabric is the best for making men’s T-shirt. There are way many types of fabrics you can use to make a T-Shirt. Which one you prefer will mostly be down to personal preference. However, from my experience making many T-shirts for my partner, I find that a mid-weight jersey cotton is a good all-rounder; it’s stretchy, comfortable and pretty easy to sew with.

A little tip for you: If you want to make a perfect T-shirt for your partner, don’t waste your first try on the best fabric if you’re not an experienced sewer. Instead, you can use some cheap jersey fabric to practise on the first attempt to make sure you like the look and the fit, then use your favourite fabric when you are really ready.

What you’ll need

  • Jersey cotton fabric for the T-Shirt body
  • A strip of fabric for the neck binding (optional)
  • Matching cotton thread
  • A basic sewing machine and some pins, scissors, paper,…
