I found the instructions a little confusing at first as there are a couple of different options included depending on whether you want to colour block, have a hidden pocket or I've even seen versions of this pattern with a double pocket so I needed to read through carefully and plan which pieces in which fabrics etc!
I only had the recipients RTW sizes rather than measurements, so had to make a guess on what pattern sizes to make based on those, where it was 3-4years RTW I chose the 4T as I figured it would be better big and grow into it than too small. I made the relaxed fit in both sizes.
Once all cut out, I checked with 'the boss' that I was doing it right according to him and sat explaining what needed joining with what to make it.
The first step is to attach the pocket parts to the rest of the front, I did this in a way which enclosed the raw/serged edge inside the pocket instead of the inside of the tee as the pattern suggested. I think this helps keep a softer less irritating seam against the wearers tummy.
All the rest went together nicely, with the only other adaptations to the pattern being making short sleeves instead of long and a banded bottom rather than hemmed. I only added the banded bottom as I felt the red needed balancing out, not because I felt the top wasn't long enough.
My son was very happy with the finished tees for his friends and I've heard that they fit well and were liked by them as well. Z has already requested at least 3 of these for himself and his brother, I can see it being a favourite for them!
