Mixed Plaid Cheyenne Button-Up

Every single year I make a plaid flannel button up shirt. It’s become a fall tradition! When JOANN asked me if I could make something using their Plaiditude fabrics, I knew the tradition would continue on this year! I wanted to mix things up a little bit this time around and I came up with the idea of using a few different plaids from the very plentiful plaid JOANN line up to create a unique, mixed plaid button up shirt.

I had a lot of fun choosing the fabrics and deciding where to use each of the three plaids. When I finally decided, I laid all of the pieces together on the floor to get a rough idea of the finished look.

These are the three fabrics I used for my shirt:

White and Navy Plaid, Light Blue, Navy and Mustard Plaid, Mustard, Navy and White Plaid (found in store).

Buttons and Interfacing were also found at my local JOANN stores.

I used the Cheyenne Tunic pattern by Hey June. This was my third time sewing up this pattern. (One of my tried and true patterns!). I sewed up the size XS, and straightened out the side seams from the under arm to the hemline for a more oversized look. For the shirt front, I made/drew a line across the bodice 6 1/2″ down from the center front, and added an additional 1/2″ for the seam allowance along the cut edge. I also added 1/2″ for seam allowance along the top edge of the bottom of the shirt.

I also increased the pocket size and placed the pockets where I thought they looked best instead of the following the pattern markings. Lastly, I added 3/4″ in length to the shirt bodice front and back. No other changes were made.

This fabric was great to work with. Make sure to pay attention to grain-lines while cutting out your pieces when using plaid fabrics. It can be helpful to cut out one pattern piece at a time instead of two at a time so everything is straight!

I love the blended look of this shirt! It’s an easy top to throw on with jeans and yet adds a lot of fun to the entire outfit. Did I mention how cozy it is, too?! So. Cozy.

I love this shirt tucked in on one side, or tied up in a knot, too. It would even be cute layered with a t-shirt underneath or a cute jacket on top. I’m telling you, everyone (everywhere) needs a good button up shirt in their fall wardrobe!
