We have enough time to sew him something special. Him. You know, Dada. The man who has everything already. It seems to get harder year after year to come up with something good. The gifts he wants are usually either too expensive, not in line with the family budget. Or he simply buys them for himself. What is a wife to do???!!!
Well, perhaps …. it’s best that we give him something that we like?!! It is ‘illegal’ to use fathers day as an excuse to give him a new favorite shirt so that he can dish the one that you are not fond of??! Or to induce behaviors that suit us well? Like dressing up. Wearing boxer shorts? I don’t think that’s so bad. In fact, it’s quite clever, isn’t ???!!
And so, that’s how this list of free sewing patterns for men was devised. Patterns for men’s clothing and accessories that would to make a good Fathers Day gifts by my standards. Basically, undies and socks, but… with a twist. (wink). Check it out!
