    Terrific Shirt Pattern
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 12/06/2017
    I am surprised that this shirt pattern doesn't have more reviews, because it is just a wonderful pattern. It is well-drafted and the instructions are quite clear. A couple of things I particularly liked is the two cuff patterns, inner and outer, and the templates used at the end for marking buttonholes and buttons. I have never had a button-down collar work out so well as this one did! I am just delighted with this pattern and will be using it many, many times as my new basic shirt pattern for men.

    Fantastic Pattern
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 11/24/2017
    I am so pleased I found this pattern! I was able to easily get a professional looking finish by following the easy, yet detailed, instructions. It is well drafted and adjustments were made easily too (I shortened the bodice and sleeves). I feel so proud of myself for being able to make my husband some work shirts that his colleagues have complimented him on. And I am no longer intimidated by sleeve plackets or collar stands!
