    Great pattern, multiple options and well written instructions.

  2. jenbailey765

    Love this pattern. There are lots of options and the directions are fantastic.

  3. linestrada

    Love this one! My son has outgrown the 2 I made him last year and has requested more for this fall. The fit is spot on and easy to sew up. And I love the different options

  4. Patty

    I use this to make hoodies for my girls. Love it!

  5. Jody

    I have made this pattern more than any other boy’s pattern I own! It’s a great fit and it has so much great information!

  6. Christina (verified owner)

    So adorable on my little guy! I like to re-use fabric from ones he has outgrown as elbow patches/accents on the new size! He loves it because there’s something familiar on the new one. Awesome pattern!!

  7. Elaine Van Emon (verified owner)

    I made this for my grandson. It’s a quick sew I see many more of these being sewn.

  8. Maria Martinez (verified owner)

    Great raglan sleeve top, have made 2 so far and plans for many more

  9. Andrea Ziegler (verified owner)

    I used this pattern to make shirts for my 3 grandsons – 2, 4, and 6 years old. All fit perfectly and they wear them all the time – with their jeans and their Jammie’s!
