Rated 5 out of 5 by mamasani from Doc never looked this good I purchased this pattern to make identical Rough Riders suits for my 5 sons. They sing together and are also a band. This fall they are doing western, & cowboy songs . My guys range from 6' to 6'9" are all similar in proportion. I expected some altering. I'm made my father, brothers, husbands & many other men's suits. This pattern was easy to use, fit perfectly once adjusted and had wonderful directions. One of the boys is using the suit for his tux next month when he gets married. Hand basting. Stay stitching, ironing, measuring and using the best materials are just a part of doing the best job of tailoring. This isn't a tee shirt & sweats. It took 2-3 weeks for each suit but it was lots of fun.

Rated 1 out of 5 by northerngirl1910 from This is the third men's suit I've sewed. Terrible fit! Shoulder seams were some 1.5 inches past my husband's shoulders, but somehow the waist was right. My husband is slim with at least medium shoulders, but this coat took amazing altering to work and fit well. Nice styling, but coat is way too long and the pattern a royal mess! Love the finished product, but only because I know how to fit a person even with a bad pattern.
