DIY Men’s Button Down!

Father’s Day is almost here. What are you giving the dad in your life? Make him this men’s button down that he will love! Checkout how we created this fun shirt below! 👔

Our cotton poplin is perfect for button down shirts! We used this Fine blue line and a batik square pattern by Hoskari printed at 

We found a great sewing pattern, Simplicity 8180, and got some navy buttons to match our fabric.


  • Two yards of custom printed cotton poplin
  • Six ½” buttons
  • ¾ yard lightweight interfacing
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine
  • Matching thread
  • Pins
  • Simplicity 8180 sewing pattern size medium
  • Button hole sewing foot

We followed the sewing instructions included with the pattern but shortened the length about 2 inches so we could fit the entire pattern on just 2 yards!

This pattern was exactly what we needed for the perfect Father’s Day gift! You can make it even more special by designing your own fabric!! When you are ready to order your fabric take 15% off with code 15dad at checkout!
