    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The Quickest 'Proper' Boys Shirt you will ever Sew, 7/28/2013

    Reviewer: (Tintinara, SA, Australia)

    I am sure this pattern was designed just for me! My favourite O+S pattern and my most utilised by far. The shirt is so snappy with all the details of a 'proper' shirt but a clever one piece collar to save time. The yoke attachment has to be 'sewn' to be believed, so clever and no unsightly seams. Do take note of the pattern illustration. This shirt is styled to finished at the waistband of the shorts, if you wish it to tuck, you must add length. This is simple to do, I added length at the side seam notches. I made many sharp versions for my son and now my teenage twin daughters wear them as well as having had linen versions made for them selves http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2013/03/sophisticated-sketchbook.html I have a full tute here http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2012/04/sketchbook-shirt-tutorial-part-1.html including a nifty way to get the collar to fit if the seam allowance of the yoke seams was a little off. (Mine often is) The shorts? What haven't I made with that pattern. Trousers, jeans (skinny&bootleg) for my son AND my daughters. See here http://www.flickr.com/photos/motherof5/sets/72157625212212623/ I loved this pattern so much that when my son grew out of them as a pull on short, I added a zip fly so he could keep wearing the style. http://www.flickr.com/photos/motherof5/8053039166/in/set-72157625212212623 I cannot say enough good things about this pattern. It is a must! In fact, I ordered a second copy to keep as a back up.


    1. On both size ranges in the first printing, the cutting layout for view B includes piece #9, the Sleeve Placket, which is only needed for view A.
    2. In the first printing, please note that piece #13, the Shorts Back, is missing seam allowances for sizes 6, 7, 8, 10 and 12. (Other sizes are not affected.) This is easy to remedy: draw a line 1/2" from the printed cutting line to create a new cutting line, as shown below.

    3. In the first printing, for sizes 6-12M, 12-18M, and 18-24M, pieces #13, #14 and #15 are missing seam allowances. Add 1/2" from the printed cutting line on each of these pieces as shown in the illustration above.
    4. In the first printing on the size 6M-4 pattern sheet, piece #4, the Shirt Yoke, has size lines with incorrect labels at the neck and shoulder edge. The piece should read as follows.

    5. In the first printing, on the size 6M-4 pattern sheet, piece #11, the Short Sleeve, has size lines with incorrect labels at the lower edge. The piece should read as follows.

    6. In the first printing, on the size 5-12 pattern sheet, piece #1 has size lines with incorrect labels on one side. The inner-most line should be labeled Size 5. The size labels printed in two other locations on this pattern piece are correct.
