    This pattern is the best. My husband loves me to make the henley for him. I learned how to make the placket from this pattern with the great self binding around the collar. This is such a versatile must have if sewing for men.

  2. Cara Chin (verified owner)

    Very good pattern and straight forward. The instructions are very clear and concise. The videos provided was exceptionally helpful. I made the polo shirt for my Dad. The only thing I altered was the cuff to be a little looser.

  3. Sheral (verified owner)

    This is an excellent pattern to have in your collection. I have made a few of the polo style and crew style T-shirts for my hubby. He loves the fit. The instructions are very clear and sews up pretty quick.

  4. Vicki Mullis (verified owner)

    My husbands wardrobe now consists of several Henley’s and T’s from this pattern. Very easy, can whip up a T in no time. Definitely a favorite!

  5. Jennifer Freeman (verified owner)

    This pattern is the best! So many options and it fits my father perfectly. Really a great value!

  6. Tamara (verified owner)

    This was my first men’s pattern. I made a long sleeve crew neck in performance fabric for my guy to work out in and it came out great, thank you!

  7. Marsha (verified owner)

    I have made T’s and sweaters for my husband using this pattern. After the first trial make, I have a great pattern that fits my husband well. And he feels special with his custom duds!

  8. Kathryn King (verified owner)

    A great staple pattern for men that uses stable jerseys. I especially appreciate the nice finishing details like the bound neckline and split hem. Includes clear instructions, fitting suggestions and even video tutorial support for sewing up a neat placket.

  9. karilynpittman (verified owner)

    I made this shirt for my husband and he loves it! He says that it is comfortable and fits well. I was pleased with the easy-to-sew garment. The pattern has very clear and easy to follow instructions. Love Notions patterns always deliver!!

  10. Liz Kebbell (verified owner)

    I’ve made this pattern about 8 times, clear instructions for the placket and I love the binding along the collar – I did need to cut this slightly wider when I made it in coolmax which is less stretchy than jersey. It’s a great fit and looks very professional.

  11. Maria Martinez (verified owner)

    Perfect fit for my son and son-in-law, have requests for more

  12. robine_30 (verified owner)

    I made two polos for my husband for Christmas, and he loves them! They went together well, and the instructions were great.

  13. Avril Newnham (verified owner)

    Hubby and son are both very happy with these shirts. As usual great instructions that came together well.

  14. Jeanette (verified owner)

    I make these for him indoors. I haven’t tried the Henley yet, but he has loads of the other styles. He says they are very comfortable and he loves them.

  15. andie.letourneau (verified owner)

    This pattern is “hubby approved”. I have made 3 polo shirts for him so far. He wears them constantly and has requested more because they fit him better than shirts he buys in the store. It’s a very easy pattern although the placket and binding were challenging the first time I sewed it.

  16. Sara Seefeldt (verified owner)

    The main pattern I use for any shirt for my husband. He wears a size medium and this fits so nice with little to no adjustments. He has bought other shirts but always comes back to wearing these for pajamas, casual wear, everything! Highly highly recommend
