    I think Ive probably made this at least 10 tines in different versions and also made a night dress . One of my favorite patterns ever. Very well designed and easy instructions to follow! Awesome pattern!

  2. lrain1 (verified owner)

    I have made two Long sleeve versions of this shirt, I love the neckline it was very easy to do.. this pattern impressed me .. very much, I will be looking forward to making many more of this one. The instructions were clear and easy to follow.

  3. Linda Ross (verified owner)

    I am new at making anything besides a skirt or simple top. I followed a tutorial and the directions and couldn’t believe how easy it was. This pattern make me feel like an accomplished sewist.

  4. sorensensremedies (verified owner)

    I can’t buy this style in RTW as my bust is too large, and I always end up feeling exposed. This pattern was a fabulous surprise. With the Full Bust Adjustment built into the pattern, I can make this in fabric that flatters me, The directions were simple to follow. I look forward to making many more.

    I haven’t made this one YET but it is on my sewing table. I Had a top similar to this one (from a store) that had holes in it from wearing it all the time, it’s one of my favs so when I saw this pattern I knew I had to have it.

  6. Toni Mericola (verified owner)

    Love this versatile pattern, just what I needed to change things up a bit.

  7. snyder2501 (verified owner)

    I haven’t made this pattern yet, but really love the look and versatility. Stay tuned!

  8. Ann Johnson (verified owner)

    I made the long sleeve version and over the winter it became my go-to for lounging. The directions were easy to follow. Even with the largest bust size, I still needed to do a FBA, which makes the top fit beautifully.

  9. ELiza (verified owner)

    I always love the look of a V-neck top but shy away. This was the perfect pattern to get the V-neck look with even more details. Great pattern!

  10. shazah.sw (verified owner)

    This was another Keira inspired purchase for me. The neckline was much easier than anticipated. I’ve only made one dress so far, but have plans to make several more and will try some of the hacks with the sleeves.

  11. Dixie (verified owner)

    Love the fit and ease of this pattern. It’s such a versatile top and I love the finished product.

  12. Aine Henderson (verified owner)

    Really like the neckline on this very flattering and deceptively simple to do.

  13. mschworer (verified owner)

    I love the neckline and the button detail (without the dreaded buttonholes) The top is very comfortable and the fit is flattering-a perfect amount of ease for my taste. The directions were clear and easy to follow. I have been so pleased with my love notions garments!

  14. Vicki Mullis (verified owner)

    I have been sewing for over 45 years and have never found patterns that fit so perfectly. I did watch the video on the neck binding because it was different than ones I’d done in the past, but it was so easy!! I see more Breckenridge Henley’s in my future!

  15. janetpayne (verified owner)

    I really enjoyed making the Breckinridge Hinley, great directions and very comfortable to wear. Thanks for a great pattern!

  16. karilynpittman (verified owner)

    Clear and easy instructions on how to sew a placket.

  17. Josephine (verified owner)

    Love this pattern and the placket finishes so clean! 4 stars because the cuffs are so tight I had to add a lot of width and modify the sleeve a bit, this isn’t a normal pattern modification for me with LN patterns, just this one.

  18. Mary Nolte (verified owner)

    I love this Henley shirt! I was easily able to extend the placket a little to make it nursing accessible. I already have plans for a few more in long sleeves and a dress length for a nightgown!

  19. Denise (verified owner)

    Love the way my Henley turned out! The highest praise came from my daughter wanting me to make one for her!

  20. emilyn78 (verified owner)

    what a great pattern, love sewing it. thanks

  21. Lrain (verified owner)

    This is I think.. my favourite pattern, I have done sew many already, I also did one without sleeves and will be making many more like it, the last one I did I did the placket all the way to the bottom and wear it buttoned up and open with a tank under… love it!

  22. Sheral (verified owner)

    Great pattern! I recently purchased this one. The neckline was easier than I thought it would be. I will be making more for sure.

  23. Kathryn Louisignau (verified owner)

    Who doesn’t love a Henley? And this one is so easy. I’ve made several with waffle knits and they come out perfect every time. Added bonus for larger bust, pattern includes a large bust piece. Love how this pattern company includes an option for those with larger busts.

  24. abbott.heather (verified owner)

    Love the fun neckline detail! As always great instructions!

  25. Emily Chen (verified owner)

    My favorite LN pattern!!! I can’t stop making Breckinridge! Fits well and love the results!

  26. Melissa Spencer (verified owner)

    I have made two of these within days of each other. The directions were so clear, I have problems with plackets and the video was amazing.

  27. Deb M. (verified owner)

    Don’t be intimidated by the placket detail. I’m a beginner and ended up with professional looking results. There are two great videos: 1. Love Notions Technique, and 2. Lifting Pins and Needles welt technique. Having things work out just adds to the pleasure of making and wearing your Henleys.
