See our BLOG POST showing how to make the shirt pattern into a SHIRT DRESS! --

EXPERIENCE LEVEL: Suitable for intermediate level of experience. Plain sewing skills only are required with the ability to make buttonholes. Neat and precise stitching and accurate seaming is essential to get the best results.

SIZES: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 14 to fit children 4 to 14 years. Always check the size chart before you start; chest and height measurements are the best guide for selecting the correct size for your child. The size chart gives approximate body dimensions only; the pattern has ease added. NOTE: an extra size [16] has been added for children who are larger than the standard size 14. Sizing can vary greatly in children aged 10 years and older.

FABRIC: Light to medium weight fabrics e.g. poplin, homespun, linen, pin-whale corduroy, flannel, chambray and similar fabrics are suitable. Coordinating larger and smaller prints can be used to accentuate the styling details.

PDF SEWING PATTERN: To print you need an ordinary desk top printer. The pattern prints on A4 [210x297mm] or 8.1/4”x11.5/8” plain paper. If you are in the USA you can use Letter size paper but the page border will be narrower on the length or you can use Legal size paper. The pattern file includes a very detailed sewing tutorial with step by step photos. The computer made digital pattern comes as a color coded, full size range nest with seam allowances included. Instructions for printing and assembling the pattern are included. All seam allowances and cutting instructions are marked on the pattern pieces. For more information on Digital PDF patterns please see the 'About PDF Patterns' page.

I had never sewn a buttoned shirt before but these directions were laid out very clearly. The shirt turned out great!

I was very nervous about doing this pattern. Description says intermediate level and I'm a beginner with just a few projects under my belt. While there's instructions assume some knowledge on technique, the pictures and instructions were great for understanding overall.

Giving this a full score.... instructions appear clear to follow as in the other Felicity patterns but I haven't used this one yet
