  1. Andrea

    Love this pattern. The fit was perfect for my little guy based on the measurements provided. The pants are a slim fit and look super cute. I used a stretch denim and they are super comfy for him to play! The shirt fits well too. I will be making this again and again. 🙂

  2. jenbailey765

    I love this pattern. I have made the pants twice and the shirt once. My favorite were the pair I made with stretch denim. I can’t wait to make more. This is probably my favorite boy pattern of all time.

    For my 12-yr old son, I made the size 14 shirt, I had to shorten the torso by 4″ and the sleeves by 1″
    He’s loving it, and I am too.
    I will definitely make more of this shirt.

    Hoping to try out the pants part of the pattern soon.

    Perfect for slim kids!

  5. Kylie

    Love these patterns- used the long-sleeve t-shirt to up-cycle an old adult T and it easily looked better than the old one when it was new! Also made the trousers out of denim twice! They make great jeans- and if you leave off the last panel on the legs they make great spring 3/4s! Thanks very much, very versatile and great instructions!

    LOVE this pattern!!! Made great jeans for my son!

  7. Sara

    I wish I could add a photo. This pattern bundle is amazing. One thing I appreciate about Tami’s patterns is the layering feature and the organization of the pattern instructions. The instructions provide clear pictures and great descriptions for each step of the way. The shirt has a great shoulder patch detail and I love the undersleeve effect. I went off the measurement chart for my son’s chest size but added length since he’s taller and the fit was perfect. The pants have awesome detailing and are so easy to make. Love everything about this pattern!

  8. linestrada

    The fit was perfect and the options are awesome. I have some cut out to make right now for this coming winter season as its perfect with the layering. Another easy pattern with professional results.

  9. Jaslyn

    Made the pants in a size 3 for my Missy and the fit is spot on! She has received so many compliments on this. Quick sew and great instructions!

  10. Evelyn (verified owner)

    Made the simple pj pants with this pattern since the size is right on, and the fit is slim. Pretty easy sew so far. Still gotta try to sew up the rest of the patterns, but so far I’m loving it.

  11. kate.mason (verified owner)

    This is such a great pattern for the little boy in your life. Its simple and clear explanations allow you to get good results.

  12. snixie1 (verified owner)

    I have just made the pants in this set and they are amazing!! The result you get from these pants are so worth it and my little man loves them!!

  13. Amanda (verified owner)

    One of my favourite patterns for my boys! Great tutorial in the pdf and love love love the knees! My boys are rough hopefully these will hold up compared to most others.

  14. janellekdavis (verified owner)

    Love these pants. The knee patches from the Maxx and the zips from the Maxx-ine together look amazing on stretch denim jeans. I have more pairs planned

  15. Pat English (verified owner)

    This is a super pattern! And if you’re looking for a scrap buster, this is it! The tee, especially, gives you a modern, edgy look that the guys will love. And what makes it even better, is that it comes together so easily and fits perfectly. Another great pattern from Love Notions!

  16. Rachel (verified owner)

    Great fit and a very versatile design! Havn’t made the pants yet but the shirt is fabulous!! Between this and the vanguard set I don’t really need much else for my sons!!! Really fantastic!!

  17. Kara (verified owner)

    I bought Moto Maxx a couple months ago and just got around to sewing up the pants for my little guy. When I had him try them on for a fit check and to see where I ought to hem them, he *swaggered* out and asked for more. “But only with this super soft waistband Mom!”

    My son is six years old and typically wears a 6 from shops. He’s average build, slim-ish but wouldn’t fit in a real “slim” pant. I made a straight size 6 with no modifications, in stretch denim with a cotton/lycra jersey waistband. For the knee part I used three layers of the denim and did contrasting topstitching there and everywhere. The fit is spot on! I was concerned about them being a bit snug getting over hips but the boy gave it two hearty thumbs up.

    The pattern itself is as fabulous as one would expect from Love Notions. Super easy layered pdf file, no trim pages, tapes together perfectly. Viola!

    I’ll definitely be making more of these for him! On trend, great fit, and a happy boy. Doesn’t get any better than that. Even teens are complimenting his Moto Maxx!

    What a screaming deal! I purchased this pattern for the pants as I have a 5 year old with a busted leg that needed soft pants 🙁 it was only later that I tried out the skirt pattern that is “oh by the way” included in this pattern. And what a skirt! I used the longer length and pockets. My girls (I have 5) are in LOVE❤ with it!! I’ve yet to try the pants for girls and shirt, they’re on my bucket list!

  19. Trista

    Perfect for all the new little guys I’ll be sewing for. Love Notions is my trusted pattern go to and this pattern is just as well written as the rest.

    I recently discovered Love Notions and after making a bunch of their patterns over the past few days for my kids (5 year old girl and 3 year old boy) I can honestly say these are the BEST download PDF patterns I have ever used. PERIOD. Don’t waste your time with other pattern makers. The instructions are clear! With plenty of pictures! The paper pieces butt right up to each other so you don’t need to trim! You can print just the size you need! PDF layers segregate the size lines so you are not squinting over 12 overlapping lines to find your kid’s size! Oh my goodness, I can honestly go on and on about just how super easy these patterns are to use. You can print them at home on copier paper and not have to struggle with tracing out the patterns from the big 3 pattern maker’s awful tissue papers. Lose or rip a piece, no problemo — just print them again. The results are great and look so cute on my kids. The wide range of sizes and options mean I can use the patterns to make countless variations for my girl and boy as they grow. Tremendous value in these patterns. THANK YOU LOVE NOTIONS! You are the best.

    I just made the pants (with quilted knee but without cuffs) in a milano knit, and everyone here finds it amazing!
    Great pattern, great results.

  22. Cindy (verified owner)

    I made this in a size 12 for my grandson. I used I used a heavy athletic knit in a gray and black with pants material for the yoke and top short sleeves with a different neck (cowl). It turned out so cute. I hope he loves for Christmas.

  23. Whitney Larson

    This is my most used pattern for my 4 boys. Its slim fitting which is perfect us. The possibilities are endless with all the options.

  24. Brianne (verified owner)

    The color- blocked knees are so cute! I used this pattern in my shop and it went over very well. Thanks for great fitting patterns!

  25. Jennifer Lee (verified owner)

    This is true to size. Add a little fun to a basic tee, or just make it as a basic.

    STOP! What a deal. So much in just one pattern, another fabulous feature of Love Notions. My son absolutely loved his set.

  28. Liesel (verified owner)

    I have made so many of these, both the pants and the shirt. They fit great, and the options add fun details! Love this pattern

    I have made quite a few of the moto max pants as well as the moto max tee for my 4 boys. The hardest part of the pants patterns was the stitching on the knee patches and keeping your lines straight. But otherwise quite easy. I even have made up moto max pants in a camo athletic fabric for my boys to use as hunting pants. I love the moto max pants I have made in any sweatshirt fleece the best. These are just a great fitting, stylish jogger pants for boys. The tee is a fun tee with the shoulder contrast panels, has a great fit, and comes together easily. So once pattern gets you the tee and the pants. Great pattern!
