It's officially Shirt Month 2019, our favorite annual event! This is the second year that we'll spend an entire month celebrating the button-up shirt and shirt dress and it has become quite popular with the online sewing community! Check out #shirtmonth to see what we mean.

What can you expect this month? A lot of sewing inspiration! We've got pattern hacks, guest posts, tutorials, and new patterns lined up for you. And that's in addition to the new fabrics we've already loaded into the shop.

Shirt Month is designed to inspire you to sew at least one shirt or shirt dress in February. Many participants sew two or more! 



For this event, we consider a shirt or shirtdress to be any top, dress, or romper with a full or partial center front placket and a collar.


Shirt and shirtdress sewing patterns

We currently have nearly twenty shirt and shirtdress sewing patterns available on Indiesew! And we'll be adding a few more over the next thirty days.

How to Play Along

If you want to get involved in Shirt Month 2019, choose a shirt or shirtdress sewing pattern and your favorite fabric! In the next few days, we'll be talking about fabric, so you can get yours washed and ready to go. 

Then, over the next few weeks, show us in-process shots of your shirt using #shirtmonth on Instagram. By the end of the month, we'll finish our shirt of shirtdresses and show them off! Upload your creation for a chance to win a $50 Indiesew Gift Card!

Ready, set, go! Happy shirt sewing!
