Mad About Plaid! "Men's Flannel Shirt" Style Post

Posted on October 27, 2016 by Shavonne Cruz

It's definitely flannel season! With that being said, my hubby has been wanting me to make him a shirt since forever. So, I decided to make him a nice cozy, rustic plaid flannel. Perfect for Fall if I do say so myself.

Here's what I used:

3yds of Red/Blue/Brown/White Plaid Cotton Flannel: Product #308634 from

1 yd of Blue Denim-like Cotton Chambray: Product # 308653 from

Simplicity Pattern #1544BB-Option D Men's Shirt.

This shirt actually took me a couple of days to complete because it is so detailed. This is my first attempt at menswear and I'm pretty pleased with the outcome.

I added a contrast denim-like chambray to the button placket, underside of the pockets, back tab, and under-collar. The contrast really brings out the blue in the pattern. This flannel is super soft and feels really yummy! The look was completed with a waffle thermal layered underneath.

Mood Fabrics has so many great plaids to choose from if you're looking to make something similar. I think I'll be making myself one pretty soon.
