Pattern directions are very detailed and have great pictures to help explain the process. I had trouble getting the sleeve into the armhole without puckers, but trimmed a tiny bit of fullness out of the sleeve cap a second time and that seemed to do the trick. I used blue oxford cloth and the finished result is just precious. Thank you for these detailed patterns, Pixie Faire!
Since purchasing our grandson his little boy doll I have made him a cute little set made from the shirt pattern along with the jeans pattern from Pixie Faire. Both patterns were so easy to follow and made up so quickly thanks to the easy-follow pattern.
I wanted a pattern to make a flannel shirt and a pajama top for my granddaughter’s new 18in. Boy doll from American Girl. This pattern was perfect! The directions were easy to follow and I am very pleased with how everything turned out!
I make the button up shirt for a boy doll and had no problems. I was very happy with the end product.
Great pattern, love the results.
