Score big with a button-up Bowling Shirt! With classic styling and a bit of retro-flair, this shirt is perfect for all ages. The shirt can be made from a single fabric for a “camp shirt” look, or can be pieced from multiple fabrics for a striped effect. The placket, collar, and sleeves can be made from contrasting fabrics as well, giving unlimited mixing and matching possibilities. The front and back of the shirt are great for personalization with applique or machine embroidery.

The shirt is designed for ease of construction. Although it looks like a store-bought shirt, it is put together very differently. The placket is assembled separately from the rest of the shirt, and is attached after the buttonholes are made. This eliminates any worry about botching the buttonholes at the end. It can be fully lined, or finished with hems. Each step of the construction process is described in detail and fully illustrated.

Used this awesome pattern to create my two triplet boys shirts for their 16th birthday, in order to match their triplet sister's sweet 16 worked out fabulously! The Bowling Shirts gave me an opportunity to really mix and match coordinating colors! Love this pattern!
