Great pattern!

Great shirt pattern. Perfect size, perfect fit. Loved everything about the shirt other than the large pockets. . But that could be omitted, so no issues.

I think the sleeves are too short on this pattern, also the placement of the pockets doesn't allow for the overlap of the band. I wish that I had used another fabric to test the pattern before making it with the optic white linen. Carole

Anca tunic. I lengthened front to match back hem edge.

I enjoyed making the Anca shirt in FS linen. The Thread tutorials were easy to follow and I completed the shirt fairly quickly. I made another Anca shirt in a cotton print posted here.

This was my second make using this This High Low Hem shirt pattern. I shortened the back hem length and omitted the pockets. The pattern runs true to size and has easy to follow tutorials on The Thread. Thank you for these free patterns!

I love this pattern. Came out very well. I made it in a khadi cotton/silk blend bought from India. The pattern was perfect for the fabric. I did a few alterations to the pattern. 1. Front neckline depth increased. It was too high for my taste. 2. Sleeve placket omitted. I just gathered the sleeve hem and bound it. 3. Omitted the pockets. I made size 4/6 and it's perfect for me , not too loose, not tight, comfortable fit. I'm definitely going to make more. Thank you for the pattern.

I chose to make the pockets smaller than the pattern. The neckline was thick, and I was worried about trying to make the buttonhole, so I sewed the top button on the right side, and sewed a snap instead.
