Porter's Button Up Shirt

This is a great, easy pattern! I've made many shirts- men's and boys, over the years. I wanted a quick and handsome shirt for my grandson and this pattern was perfect! The directions are so clear and lots of pictures, so it's a great first-time button up shirt for someone to make.

Great Pattern

I used this pattern to cut down a mens small shirt to fit a 9 year old boy. The lady asked me to do alterations to a pajama set she had bought and I used your pattern to get the correct arm syce and top of sleeve. It worked great. Will make a whole shirt for my own grandson using this pattern.

I used this pattern to create a bowling shirt for a little guy. It was absolutely perfect! I was intimidated by the collar but the step-by-step instructions in photos were very easy to follow and it wasn't as hard as I thought. Another great CKC pattern!

you need this for every boys wardrobe

this is such a staple for little boys (and big boys, and mens) wardrobes. Ive used snaps on the little guys (for easier dressing for little ones) and buttons on the big guys. I love that I can make them coordinating outfits

SO fun!

This was much easier than I thought it would be. And you can make it really fun by mixing it up with fabrics.

great boys pattern

I loved making this shirt. First time I’d ever made buttonholes. It turned out great!

Great Pattern!

It's hard to find good but easy patterns for boys. This one fits the bill perfectly. I can do a pocket or not, contrast the collar or not and other fun options. Easy to sew and my grandson loved his first shirt from me!

This pattern is easy to use, instructions are very direct and you should have no problems putting it together. I will certainly be purchasing from your company again.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this pattern so much! I was getting so tired of only making shorts and vests for my little guy to match his twin sister. Porter's is EXACTLY the pattern I needed! I made one today out of Ford Truck fabric! YAY! I do need this in TWEEN and MENS PLEASE?!?!?!?

Super cute shirt pattern!

This is another favorite pattern of mine for boys. The pattern had easy instructions and I have made my grandson several shirts with this pattern. His mom and dad both love the way it fits him. Great pattern and I highly recommend it!

So much fun

I've been sewing for about 2 years and CKC is my first foray into sewing clothes. The techniques that are complicated would be attaching the collar, arms and making buttonholes. Thankfully, the Facebook page and there are tutorials that help specifically with those issues. Sewing takes practice and I'm excited my sewing game has definitely stepped up bc of this!

Great pattern!

This patternis really nice for dressing your little guy up for church or play. Clear instructions to make it possible for even a beginner to have a great finished product. I've made this one several times so far and see many more in our future.
