Nice shirts and choice of fabrics. I'm sure your brothers are enjoying them.

I looked at the pictures before reading your review and thought "whaaat - she just made three of these?". Lucky brothers. Thanks for the review as I have this pattern and need to make some shirts for DH!

Beautiful job. I've made this pattern many times for myself, usually in the long sleeve (I substitute a standard cuff placket). It works well with "serious" fabrics too - sedate cotton, linen, rayon, silk. Nothing is more comfortable than the short-sleeved version; it's the classic camp shirt. Women look great in this style too, particularly in white - crisp and clean.

Very fine shirts and the fabric is a perfect pairing to pattern and also to the brothers. Blue is my favorite color, but those tigers are awesome! Great review!

Great review on a shirt pattern suitable for large prints. I have a stash from too and will make this for my son. Thanks.

Thanks for reviewing this! Your's looks great! I like how there is a yoke, so many don't have that - it's the perfect pattern I have been looking for, to replace my husband's favorite shirt. I'm glad to hear how this pattern worked for you.

Your execution is superb all the way around; from fabric selection and for whom to use it, your blind alterations, and sheer workmanship. Your review is so helpful--I've been wanting to make this up for my husband, and now I feel armed and ready, thanks to you! Lovely, lovely job indeed.

Absolutely fabulous! I love both shirts, and can see how you have tailored the fabric choices to the guys!
