The pattern is great overall. I'm very familiar with it from using the Porter's pattern when it was only available in little boys' sizing. However, the pattern for men does not fit together quite as well as the one for boys. Overall, easy enough to correct but would be nice if it didn't need that extra step.
Your guy is going to look and feel fabulous in his new button-up shirt! Porter’s features short sleeves and a straight bottom hem, plus two pocket options: regular or oversized. The collar has a fully enclosed neck seam and a one-piece collar/stand, making it easy to sew with professional results. The shirt has a relaxed fit and it’s perfect for everyday wear, novelty appeal, or fun vacation looks. You can use shirting fabric, plaids, solids, or even his favorite character prints! If you want a matching set for his little buddy, Porter’s is also available (sold separately) in sizes NB to 14 Kids! With so many possibilities, this pattern is sure to be a staple in your sewing space.
