Great instructions

This pattern is great, only the sleeves are a bit tight for some reason and my arms are not particularly big. I have done a lot of sewing and mostly avoided sleeves with plackets, but your instructions for those were so easy to follow! Thank you :)

Unable to access pattern

I downloaded the pattern file, however it only includes pattern information!

Hi! They are included as an attached file to the main PDF file you are opening. You would open the PDF with Adobe Reader. In the Adobe reader menu click View - Show/Hide - Navigation Panes - Attachments. Adobe pops open a side panel with the attached file which are the pattern pieces you'd print. I am sending you an email with the steps right now. Have a great day.

Hi I've managed to download the pattern without problem. 2 Questions: 1) Where is tutorial for this shirt? The "CLICK HERE" link leads to an Error Page unfortunately. 2) Would this pattern work for a man as well ?

Beautiful Linen Shirt

Thank you, Oksana for emailing the Genia shirt file to me. The file opened immediately when I followed the directions for Adobe. I was able to print only the sizes I needed. Surely, I will write again when I get the shirt sewn. Thank you again. Barbara

I really like this shirt! I also embroidered some motifs on the upper part of the right front piece. The only thing is that the sleeves are somewhat tight. It doesn't stop me from wearing the shirt, but it is a bit odd, given the general looseness of this pattern.

Such a nice versatile pattern! I made myself a shirt and was pleased with it - the clear instructions, the sizing, ease of stitching - everything! I now want to make this for my husband (for his birthday) - the style seems quite unisex to me - so is there any guidance on sizes particularly? He wears UK size 36-38; what would that translate to in US sizing in the Genia pattern? I'd appreciate any help please! (i will make sure the button band goes on left :) )
