The Peter Henley is a great design as it gives your little ones the great comfort of a T-shirt, which they all love, but by adding the button placket it sure does make it look smarter.
The optional kangaroo pocket is a really nice touch too, most kids like some kind of pocket.
The Peter Henley sewing pattern is rated by the designer as suitable for an intermediate sewer.
The pattern includes a lot of sizes from 12 months to 8 years (chest sizes 19.5″ – 26″ ). The shirt is designed to be a casual fit., which is very appropriate for everyday play or when a slightly dressier look is needed.
The designer recommends for her awesome project that you should use knit fabric. You will need 1/2 yard (12 months) to 3/4 yard (8 years) of your main fabric and 1/4 yard accent for placket and pocket in all sizes.
