Rated 2 out of 5 by Cat318 from Shirts Fit Well but Instructions are incomplete I am a somewhat experienced clothing maker so I figured it out, but there are several steps missing in this pattern's instructions. From what I can gather, you should stitch front to back at shoulder seams right after you put in the stay-stitching at the neck on step 1. The collar instructions are written very badly. The directions for the loop make no sense at all unless you happen to have noticed that the button template has no top button. The loop is for the top button. There is no indication on the pattern or the instructions what that loop is for, or which "dot" it connects to on the front -- because there are several dots on the front. Note to makers-- it will look better, and be simpler to make, with a normal top buttonhole. Once the shirts are made, men's sizes are true. Boy's size M is about a size 6, and L is about a size 8. Once the instructions are corrected, I'll change my rating to 4star.

Rated 2 out of 5 by pinkcat from haha 3 hours - no way! I thought this would be an easy pattern as it states 3 hours. The directions are too vague. NO WAY 3 hours.
