I love that this pattern has several different options, for boy style or girl style. Each of my four little granddaughters is getting one for her doll, to match the shirts I am making for them! Going to make for super cute family picture accessories! The pattern is well made and instructions are clear.
I loved the design of this pattern. I loved the aspect of the yoke and the front part as I used lace. However, I could not get the collar stand to work. After 3 attempts I decided to ditch the collar stand and just insert the collar. I thought it was too fiddly for my hands. Would love to hear what others thought.
Very, very happy with this pattern. I have made the boy shirt. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and I loved having all the actual photos instead of the line drawings that are in most patterns. Keep up the good work!
I really have enjoyed this pattern. The attention to detail and close resemblance to adult "real people" shirts is great. I will be using this pattern over and over.
