    Easter shirt
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 04/26/2018
    I made a last minute shirt for Easter, and it came together beautifully. I loved having separate upper and under pieces, it simplifies the sewing. The collar is the neatest I’ve made, and I will use the instructions for other shirts. Best of all, I have a reliable shirt pattern I can use for years!

    Button up button down shirt
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 04/19/2018
    Well drafted pattern for little boys with big boy details. I am completing the third of three shirts, size 5, for my grandson. I did use a contrast color for the inner collar band on two and they are so cute. The cotton fabrics I used are fine quality shirting weight and I was able to put French seams when completing the side seams, but lapped seams would be a nice alternative. The pattern sizes are stacked, but I traced the appropriate size to conserve the pattern for future use. I have also made garments from the Sketchbook shirt and shorts pattern, so can attest these patterns are well designed.
