    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.

    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.
