Current Tags What is a Tag:
Pattern Description:
Loose fitting shirt has front and back darts, pocket and pocket flap variations, optional epaulettes, sleeveless. or long sleeve with cuff. Cup size options.

Pattern Sizing:
B5 (8-16) I made size 8

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Generally yes. I made View A (sleeveless version) but used View B pocket without the flaps. I also omitted the epaulettes.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very easy.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love everything about this shirt pattern. Even the fit is perfect. Nothing to dislike.

Fabric Used:
Cashmere Crepe in a beautiful sea green colour

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Used a different pocket option and didnt add the epaulettes. It does have quite a long body length but I was happy to leave that as it was.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
If I decided to make another shirt, this will be the pattern I use. Really liking the fit, construction, and the look of this shirt. So yes, I would highly recommend, especially for those who need cup size options as it's included in this pattern.

Conclusion:
A great practical, useful pattern to have. It's great for beginners also, and certainly one I will be hanging onto.

Great looking shirt! Glad to here you recommend this as I have the pattern. The loose fit reminds me of the Archer shirt everyone has been raving about.
