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

Pleasantly Surprised

I put the pdf together and it was spot on. no manipulating the pages etc. This in itself get 5 stars from me as most pdf (free anyway) I end up redrafting. But this is good. Now cutting it out and sewing it up tonight so stay tuned

This is the free Arca Shirt pattern. This is a great first shirt pattern because there's no collar and fewer pattern pieces than most shirts. I put the pattern file through PDF Stitcher and created a projector file. I Highly recommend this pattern!

Melissa • June 28, 2023

This is my all time favourite pattern. Here I've used it as a jacket in a heavy weight upholstery linen. Mixed pattern for interest. I wish I could post multiple pictures to show all the assorted details.

Isabel • March 2, 2023

Here I've used the pattern with no changes although I love the flexibility of this pattern and to make you own changes. This is now my go to pattern for a blouse and I've lost count of how many I've made.

Isabel • March 2, 2023

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

Maryann • April 22, 2021

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.
