Sewing For Men

Most seamstresses shy away from sewing for men — it seems like men’s clothing garments would be harder to make and harder to fit than sewing for children or women.  But have you thought about doing some basic sewing for men, especially those who are big, tall and husky that can’t find anything to fit them.

You could start with pajamas or nightshirts that are designed to fit the big and tall men that are available at  These outfits could then be re-made into elastic waist sport pants and shirts for those same big, tall and husky men.


Each of the ready made patterns come in two size ranges – 1X – 6X and S-XL.  The patterns make up easily and quickly, and you could even make up a set of the short sleeve/short pants and nightshirt to put into your customer waiting area.  Make a set using obvious pajama/nightshirt fabric, and make a second set out of a sportswear type fabric, just to let your customers know that you can outfit those big husky men as well as your women and children customers.  Who knows, you might be getting into a whole new niche of sewing in your area, and bring in orders and customers that will be a pleasant surprise to you!
