Jade — Jade Relaxed Linen Shirt Pattern

In a closet full of different styles, the white linen shirt is the very definition of a wardrobe staple. The shirt we imagined combines traditional tailored features like button bands, sleeve cuffs and a yoke with a minimalist styling, relaxed fit and a stand up collar. It falls perfectly, looks sharp and feels luxuriously soft in our linen.

Collar issue
Reviewer: ginny

I made this shirt last year and forgot about the difficulty I had with the collar. It seems the collar pattern is to long for the neck. In order for the collar to stand up, it must be smaller than the neck. For a size 8 I had to reduce the length of the collar by about 5/8 inch.

Sewing Instructions poor
Reviewer: Carole

Aside from the collar issues, here is one problem with the Jade instructions: At the point of sewing the sleeve plackets, this is the link you show: blog.fabrics-store.com/2018/01/23/sewing-glossary-how-to-sew-a-continuous-bound-sleeve-placket/. So that's what I did, throwing out the piece I cut from your pattern. Your instructions are wrong. Summing this experience up, 1) Do NOT like running from my machine to my computer screen for instructions. I want printed instructions at hand for reference as I go. 2) Your linen fabric is great. Your patterns? Not so much. I would not give you a nickel (let alone the outrageous price of nearly $50) for another one.

Thanks for your review. As mentioned, in my previous comment, I have personally notified our design team. I have also sent you an email. You can also download our pattern tutorials, there is a "Download Tutorial" button at the end of the instructions allowing you to download and print the instructions if you prefer to have them hard copy.

Sewing Instructions poor
Reviewer: Carole

First had a lot of trouble with the collar... now I'm looking at the sleeve placket....where the directions on that say I'm to make a couple of bias tape pieces yet nowhere do I see instructions for the placket that I cut out with your pattern. I'm nearly ready to give up on this shirt. The person who answered my collar issue could not help with that one, so please someone talk about this sleeve placket. It would be very helpful if your pattern had markings on them... middle of the collar etc. for placement also for sleeves, and etc. etc.

Men`s sizing
Reviewer: Anna-Lena

Hi there, like some before, I would be so happy to know how approx. the size converted to men`s size would look like. Have you had any experiences so far? Many thanks ;)

Hello, We recommend comparing your actual body measurements to the size guide to get your best size. This will help you avoid any discrepancies when comparing sizes from clothing brands and then converting sizes since different brands have different sizing guides than we do. If you'd like further advice and assistance with size, please email us at ask {at} fabrics-store.com

suitable for men?
Reviewer: ida

Hey I love this shirt! I wonder - is this an unisex pattern, could I also sew it for a man ? What would you recommand for a size 50 (hmm size 50 in Germany, what is that in US? I dont know, maybe you do?) Thank you a lot! Ida

Absolutely! I would check the size guide and compare the body measurements to our size chart to see what a size 50 translates to for this particular pattern. If you need further assistance you can submit a request via email, just click the 'Customer Care' button above. Have a great day!

Beat the heat with this one
Reviewer: Andrea

I know this is intended to be relaxed fit but I made one size smaller and it was still roomy - make sure to go by the finished size to get your intended results. However, I really love the way this looks with a pair of shorts and beach hat. Great for the warm weather when you don't want to wear a t or tank. Couldn't figure out the placket so I just used the bias tape method.

Pattern?
Reviewer: Jessica

I can't find the cutting pattern. I press on the download pattern button, and it downloads it yes. But when I open up the file I can't find the cutting pattern. There is only 5 pages of general information.

Good afternoon - this particular pattern is in conjunction with a tutorial https://blog.fabrics-store.com/2018/03/20/the-relaxed-linen-shirt-tutorial/. The 4th page of the PDG just has the size/yardage requirements info, but the sewing notions and steps will be on the tutorial itself ( link above). Hope this helps and please email us if you have any questions :)

Rita profile image Placket confusion
Reviewer: Rita

I have the pattern all cut out and ready to lay out on my material. But, I always read the instructions thoroughly before doing so. Now my confusion is in how to cut out the sleeve placket. The pattern piece is overlapping itself, I think, and there's not instructions in what to do with it. Can anyone help?

How does this pattern verses the Genia?
Reviewer: Anonymous

I don't see much difference between this pattern and the Genia at least visually or in construction. Can you explain how the patterns differ? Thanks!

Oksana

Good afternoon! These two shirts are not as similar as they might look. Jade has a more relaxed, ample fit, a back yoke and more tailored sleeves with sleeve vents and cuffs. Genia has simple straight sleeves, no front patch pocket and the hem is just straight and not curvy as on Jade. Basically, Jade is more tailored and features all those details that you usually see on traditional shirts. Genia is a simplified version of Jade. Hope this helps and have a great day.

Diana profile image I object to Adobe Acrobat
Reviewer: Diana

PDF files can be read by all computers. I use Preview on a Mac to do the same thing (and more) as Adobe Acrobat. I can view the tutorials on your website but cannot get the pattern because I refuse to sign into Adobe to use Acrobat (which I did download but did not make it my default PDF reader.) This is really aggravating and makes me unhappy that the Fabrics-Store allows a third party software company to hold your customers hostage to their file reader. I have signed in to your website, bought your fabric, can read your tutorials, but the final step — getting the pattern — is denied to me because of some arrangement you have made with Adobe software company. It's unnecessary, unless you really don't want anyone but PC (Windows) users to use your fabric and patterns. I compute and I sew. I don't see any reason for there to be a conflict between the two.

My apologies for your frustration with this issue. We have no arrangments with Adobe. In 1991 Adobe created the PDF and anything other than Adobe Reader is actually a "third party app" and as such will not always be a reliable means for opening/viewing/printing and certainly will not have all the robust features that our PDF patterns have. For example, our patterns have a "size layering" feature that allows you to choose which size(s) you would like to print if you do not want to print all of them. The other issue is that we are able to give customer support to any printing issues you may have with Adobe Reader... it would be impossible for us to be knowledgeable on all the "third party" apps out there... and some may not work at all. What you have described with your Mac app as a "preview" is just that.... a preview that just lets you take a peek. It does not have the functionality to view/print the included attachments, which in our case are the printable pattern pages. Adobe Reader is not a "PC" program. Adobe Reader works reliably across all platforms and devices, including tablets and phones. The best part is Adobe Reader is FREE. Please understand that we are not denying you the use of our patterns, it is the limited function of your preview app. Please feel free to email me directly to Ask@Fabrics-Store.com and I will be happy to help you further. :) -Catina

LOVE IT
Reviewer: Rae

I love the lines and simple elegance of this pattern. Comfort is key in my wardrobe and this will be one of my "go to" everything shirt, time and time again. Easily dressed up or down to fit the occasion. Thanks so much for adding a new favorite to my closet !

Another success! Thank you for the pattern. I made this with your Mixed linen and cotton blend medium wt. I felt that this fabric is suitable for my first mandarin style collar and my first front button placket as the fabric is slightly "stiffer" which makes things easier to line up. Had so much fun with your instructions and pics. Tho with my next project, I will stick with your softened 100% linen, which is my most preferred fabrics.

Posted by Warty

I made this pattern as a sample before cutting into linen. I noticed the shirt seems "off center". Is that how it should look? There is much more fabric on the pocket side at the neck than on the non-pocket side. Is this how it should look or did I do something incorrect? I want to make if correctly out of my white linen.
