Sewing for men 2015 challenge: Mr February, Thread Theory Finlayson.
May I present to you a ‘man sew’ for February. The second of the twelve challenges I have set for myself in 2015. To sew a garment for my ‘talented other half’ every month.
I give you Mr February: he is an outdoors type, hence the rucksack and the dog. He is not afraid of mud. Loves to go hiking down by the river on a typical colourless February afternoon…
He is wearing the ‘Finlayson’ sweater by Thread Theory .
No wonder this ‘man sew’ has taken so long to be revealed. I did not enjoy sewing it! I digressed from the task at every opportunity, I constantly became distracted by new patterns and fabrics.
The actual sewing was easy peasy and the sweater is fine, all round a good sew.
BUT the pdf was huge and very boring to prepare.
My other half is tall, I cut the extra large size (even though he is a Large) a perfect fit, because he likes the looser fit and longer arms.
He has pronounced it ‘comfy’ and is wearing it again today.
Below you can see Mr December, Mr January and Mr February:
