Button Up Shirt Bundle for Girls and Boys 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

The pattern is well made and the instructions are very clear. The pattern sews up with a very professional look. The boy cut pattern fits my My Life and Journey dolls well, but I find the slim fit cut too snug (all dolls are not the same). Very happy with my purchase.

Good pattern

I love this pattern the only thing that I dislike about not only this pattern but many more are the directions, they go from one step to skipping about 5 and expecting you to know how to do it with a bad photo. Otherwise this pattern is wonderful!

simple and stylish

My goodness. The styling in this shirt is amazing. Well done LBJ. I love the way the collar fits.I love the look of the front. I love the fit. I did find the cuffs challenging but fun. This was a satisfying project to work on with clear instructions and great detailing. I have made it for the girls and now for my new boy doll.
