    I made the T-shirt and the cargo pants and love this pattern. I am well pleased about the instruction. Thank you so much for the pattern.

    Excellent pair of patterns!

    Absolutely wonderful patterns! I've now made them both, and will likely make them both for years to come. I will absolutely be buying the larger size range when my son grows out of the smaller.

    The tee is so simple and quick to construct, and while the pants aren't quick, they're not difficult. The extra topstitching, while time consuming, really makes these pants look professional. Next up: FT cargo shorts!

    Lovely fitting raglan t-shirt
    Reviewed by on 02/29/2016
    I have used this T-shirt pattern for pyjama tops for my granddaughter, just adapting the length for ribbing cuffs and bottom hems. It's such a lovely fit, so superior to an older knit pattern I had been using. I particularly like the fit around the neck. I haven't made the pants yet, but looking forward to trying them soon for my new grandson!

    Wardrobe staples
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 08/29/2015
    This is a terrific pattern for rough and tumble little boys. The shirt (of which I have sewn six) goes together super-quickly thanks to the raglan sleeve. It fits true to size though I find it useful to add a hair of length. My boy may just have a long torso, though.

    The pants take a little more time but the result is well worth it. One thing to note for those considering the pattern is that the knee is not actually reinforced with a second layer of fabric, rather it is pieced. It includes darts, I assume, for ease of movement at the knee joint. The pair I made for my son in sturdy twill have held up wonderfully despite his most spectacular spills, I assume in part because of the roomy knee. I highly recommend this pattern!

    I LOVE this pattern! it is easy to follow and sews up fast. I made these for my children before we went on vacation to Acadia National Park. I was stopped numerous times while hiking and asked where i bought them. These are now a new staple for my children :) I can't wait to sew more of these patterns!

    Cargo Pants review
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 07/26/2015
    These are great pants! My son loves them, I make him 3-4 pairs each year as wardrobe staples. I don't add the cargo pockets simply because I'm too lazy, but I do include the front and back pockets and the belt loops. The instructions are great. My son is fairly large, and these fit comfortably. I reinforce just the front knee section with fusible interfacing and it makes the knees last much longer. I also sew them with an ample hem, so I can let them down as he grows (this way they last two years). They look very RTW.

    The pants are amazing. Once again, Liesl has taken a difficult concept and made it easy to follow with professional results. I love the outcome. Take your time and go slowly and the pants come together beautifully. I see making a lot more in my future.

    Cargo pants and raglan shirt review.
    Reviewed by on 01/15/2015
    Very nice look, if you have the time to make the cargo pants. There are a lot of pieces, so it takes a lot of time to finish after cutting out . . . maybe an hour more than other pants. If you are adding a zipper onto the pants, there is a zipper tutorial on Oliver+S site. HOWEVER, the tutorial does not show how to finish the waistband or add a button, snap, etc. Neither does the cargo pants pattern, since the fly front is actually just for show (though convertible to a real one). You will have to look at other patterns or tutorials to figure it out. The raglan shirt is a really quick sew. It takes me less than an hour to make one. The assembly is clear and simple. Really, the raglan pattern is going to get the most use for me. It does seem to be designed with a 3/4 sleeve, so I had to extend the arm to make it wearable in winter. Despite any negative comments, I really like Oliver+S patterns. Instructions are clear and the patterns are thoughtfully designed. They _always_ look good when finished, even before fitting adjustments. There are no surprises, and I feel confident that I am doing the right thing. Plus, each pattern is a teaching tool, so you learn something that you can take to other sewing projects.

    i am in the process of using the t-shirt pattern (sz 12) as a basis for some jackets... i trust o+s to be a solid foundation on which to riff! I have sewn up another company's raglan pattern and not been happy with the directions or shape, so it's a relief to have this one.

    My grandkids and I love these patterns!
    Reviewed by on 11/12/2014
    I haven't had a chance to make up this pattern yet, but I have sewn several things for my grandkids from some of your other patterns. My grandson loves the sandbox shorts, and my granddaughter looked so cute in the Pinwheel dress and tunic, and the ice-cream dress was an absolute favorite of hers. She would proudly say her Grammie made the dress for her when asked where she got it. I've also made the backpack and the vest in the Olive + s book and both were total hits with my grandson. I like working with Oliver +S patterns, they go together well and the instructions are always clear and concise. Thank you for your patterns and I especially enjoyed your sale the month of October. Look forward to more of those!! I bought 4 patterns and there are lots more I would love to sew!!

  • Errata

    In the first printing of the pattern there was a minor error on the first page of the instruction sheet. The finished measurements for the pants waist should read as follows:

    SIZE 6-12 M 12-18 M 18-24 M 2T 3T 4 5 6 7 8 10 12
    Waist* 21" 22" 23" 24" 25" 26" 27" 28" 29 1/2" 30 1/2" 32" 33"

    * Fully extended

     

     

    Determining Which Printing You Have

    As errata are discovered, they are marked for correction in subsequent printings of the pattern.

    To determine which printing of an instruction sheet or pattern sheet you have, look at the copyright box which appears on each. Toward the bottom of the box, there is a series of numbers.

    The lowest number you see there indicates which printing you have. For example, if the lowest number in the box on the instruction sheet is "2," you have an instruction sheet from the second printing. Any errors in the instructions mentioned for the first printing have been corrected in your version. If the lowest number in the box on the pattern sheet is "1," you have a copy of the pattern sheet from the first printing.

    Pattern sheets and instructions sheets can be printed separately, so be sure to check the errata notices for pattern pieces against the printing number on the pattern sheet and errata notices for instructions against the printing number on the instruction sheet.
