    Simple instructions! Quick sew!

    After sewing up a competitor's t-shirt pattern I was disappointed with the results. So I came looking for something better and I found this pattern. I immediately loved the silhouette. I decided to give it a try. It took me an hour to sew. The instructions were super clear, and my husband loves his final t-shirt. It looks so professional. Thank you so much!

    I made the girls' and boys' version of the T-shirt and they both came out perfectly! Easy pattern to follow with fantastic results. I know I will be using this one over and over again.

    best tshirt I've made lately
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 03/15/2016
    I bought the family pack but have only sewn the kids school bus tshirt so far. This is the best tshirt pattern I've ever made. Clear directions, neckband that fit correctly and the finial product looks great and very RTW. I do think this is a more fitted t. If you are used to loose oversize RTW, pay attention to the finished measurements before you cut.

    Instructions great as with all of this brand. Fit was great. I used a twin needle for the hems and it looks 'like a bought one'. Will use this pattern over and over.

    Learning to sew with knits
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 08/05/2015
    I bought the family tshirt pack to sew knit items for my whole family. (My sewing experience in the past has been limited to woven cottons.) So far I have only made one men's tshirt. The digital pattern was great to print out and assemble. I initially got confused with the layout (should one of the main panel pieces placed on a fold be placed with the print facing down so that the right side of the fabric is used for both pieces?). Although the tshirt turned out well, the sleeves were a little too big for my husband. That's most likely because he has thin upper arms (product of his digital-based profession) and not a problem with the pattern but regardless I am now trying to figure out how to trim the sleeves some to fit him better. What making this tshirt did inspire in me was researching more about best practices (best hem practices, stitch length, seam choice, etc.) for sewing different knit weights (light vs midweight). I admit I am still on this learning curve session as the info out there is a bit overwhelming with all the choices. I would love to see a Oliver&S video tutorial on sewing with different types of knits as that will help me continue using the digital pattern family to make more knit pieces for my entire family and maybe using knits in place of woven cotton for the other patterns I own. I love all the Oliver&S patterns and look forward to increasing my sewing skills while using these designs. I plan to continue buying these patterns for a long time!

    very easy + fits great

    I bought this pattern to make jersey knit dresses for my 6yo daughter, which was very simple to do by adding a gathered rectangle for the skirt. So far I've made the child's short-sleeve and long-sleeve shirt and they went together very easily and fit her perfectly. I'm making some thermal knit long-sleeve shirts for myself next.

    A very handy basic T
    Reviewed by on 11/27/2014
    I've sewn up two sizes in the kids T and one of the men's sizes too. The pattern is well drafted and it went together with no issues. I used a pure cotton knit with a little less stretch, so opted to cut sightly longer neck bindings for the kids T's, and they turned out really well. The kids pattern seems to be designed to be a relatively close fitting top. Next time I might go up an extra size above what I'd ordinarily sew to provide a looser fit with more growing room.

    nice fit
    Reviewed by on 11/03/2014
    So far I only made this in the children's sizes (18-24 months(79-84 cm) and 6 years (114-124cm)). The smaller size fits my large 1 year old very nicely and the sleeve length is good. The larger size was a tiny bit tight in the shoulders for my tall athletic 5 year old (even though she falls in the middle of the height bracket). Also the sleeves are about 5cm short - I measured her arms and compared the sleeve length of the pattern to her store-bought tees. I'm about to make her one in the next size up (7) but even then still need to add 5 cm to sleeve length. Conclusion: don't be lazy, check the measurements (sizing and finished) before cutting into your fabric! =) Besides the sizing issues, the patterns are clear, easy to follow and, very cool - they are walked! This means the seams line up and are the same length when sewn together - so many commercial patterns leave you wondering where you went wrong!

    I made myself a t in just three toddler naps. I keep getting asked where I got it so I guess people like it! I can't wait to make more for myself and the kids.
