Additional Notes

This pattern (both paper and digital formats) includes all pattern pieces and instructions with illustrations.

I love everything about this pattern, the instructions are perfect, the fit is spot on, the hack potential is massive. Plus you can mix the Archer and Alder and create a fantastic button up long sleeved dress.

The arms were much too long for me and the cuffs are quite loose. Size down for a non-oversized look.

Overall I really like the final look of this shirt. I like the relaxed fit. The garment finish measurements were pretty accurate. It's definitely worth it's intermediate difficulty rating. I had some trouble figuring out how to do the cuff and plackets.

I really like this pattern. Such great details and I loved the sew along as well.

This pattern is super great, but it is the first time you are sewing the shirt and you are following the sew-along on Grainline Studio blog, make sure you are following the steps in the Instruction Booklet, because sew-along has errors.

Such a great pattern - if you haven't made this yet get on it!

This shirt is very boxy- I would've like it better if there was more shape to it. It looks like a men's shirt on me!
