Fabric patterns in your final product may vary from those used in the original listing should this happen. (Ex. chevron fabric is out of stock; polka dot of similar colors may be substituted.) I do try to keep them similar, but it is not always possible.

If you want a certain pattern used or do not want a certain pattern used, please specify that in the "Notes to Seller" box during checkout.

Custom color requests are also available; however, I can not guarantee the same pattern in every color. (i.e. sample shows Pink Chevron, but blue is requested. Blue may be done in polka dot or other pattern.)

Super cute shirt and exactly what was pictured. Shirt quality is very nice!

I loved this shirt! It is so cute and Pretty Penguin stitch was so helpful!! He was the talk around school in his toddler class and his daddy was super pleased and happy when we picked him up from his deployment. He said "this shirt is so awesome! Where'd you find this?" :)
