    4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sketchbook Shirt, 2/4/2015

    Reviewer: (Paraparaumu Beach, New Zealand)

    The good: The pattern printed out and went together easily. Instructions are clear. Love the button placket and finished yoke - very professional looking. Not so good: My son is a size 8, but I ended up making a size 10 for him, based on measurements. The fit of the size 10 shirt is good, but I wish it were a little longer. Next time I make it, I will probably add an inch to the length.


    4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loved it. Will be making this again, 2/3/2015

    Reviewer: (Adelaide)

    The little shirt was very detailed yet had easy to follow instructions. I will definitely be making this shirt again! Two suggestions. 1) sew the topside collar rather than the underside first for a more professional looking finish. 2) the view b is a mandarin like collar and I was hoping for the more triangle variety (view a). the pattern view did not clearly show this difference in neckline.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 still a workhorse pattern!, 1/2/2015

    Reviewer: (Westchester , NY)

    This is my second copy of the Sketchbook shirt, I wore out the first one! As always, a workhorse pattern that I used for our son's Christmas show shirt, long sleeves and band collar options.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Awesome instructions, as always, 11/13/2014

    I sewed the Sketchbook Shirt (long sleeve, size 2T) for my godson for Christmas. This is the first time I've made a button-down style shirt, and I was expecting it to be a little tricky. The pattern was very easy to follow, though; it made the whole thing very straightforward. I love how the shirt came out, and I'm planning short-sleeve shirts for him for spring! It would be nice to have had a reference of what pages to print for each size, however. The way the collar pieces were tiled confused me so much that I decided to print out all the pattern pieces. I ended up wasting a fair bit of paper; a reference list could help avoid this minor issue. All-around a great pattern, though.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Great for school uniforms , 10/16/2014

    Reviewer: ( Hastings , New Zealand)

    Loved this easy to follow pattern. I made white school shirts and they came out great. I will make many more over the years!
