Buy the Men’s Fairfield Shirt sewing pattern from Thread Theory. The Fairfield is a button-up shirt with all 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 the 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 a centre back pleat or create a more fitted look with long shaped darts.

The Fairfield includes regular sizing for slim to average figures, as well as a separate set of pieces for larger figures to accommodate a rounded stomach.
