Easy and cute but a bit short

I got my first shipment of linen and I thought I'd start with some easy things. I started with the tank top then I moved on to this. Both patterns were easy to understand and the instructions were helpful. Like others have said, this shirt is very short. I added three inches and it still feels a bit short. Next time I make this, I might another inch. Thanks for the pattern!

Simply stylish

I'm getting back into sewing after taking more that a decade off. This pattern is a first for - downloading and using PDF patterns, first time ever sewing linen (excuses listed on this site), making and using bias tape. For those who dread set-in sleeves, this design works around it. BTW, many of your PDF designs are great for people who like Eileen Fisher type styles. Jean

Quick and easy sew.

I wanted an easy pattern to get a sewing "fix" for the afternoon. This Simple Linen Tee was just perfect for me. I did tweak it a little, widened the neck opening, added 4" to the length, and put in a continuous lap placket. When I make it next I think I will add 6" to the length. I am a more mature woman, and am finding I like my shirts a little longer. I would love to submit a picture....but not sure how. Thanks so much for offering these free patterns. It is really very generous.

Lovely pattern

This pattern is great. I suggest making a quick mock-up first (considering its a simple sew this shouldn't take long) as I did have to make a couple of adjustments. The sizing is accurate but this is a very short pattern. I had to add 8cm to the length. I also deepened the curve of the collar because it was choking me. Otherwise, the small details on this pattern make it very elegant and wearable. Nice job!

Really cute and easy for my second clothing sewing project ever. Made some alterations, faced the neckline and added a keyhole closure with a leather tab.

Lori • April 24, 2020

Monique- Simple Linen Tee A nice and easy sew and the pattern is very easy to adapt to my own needs, such as lengthening, adding a nicer placket, and widening the neck. Thanks so much for the pattern.

Amelia • February 2, 2020

This pattern was easy and super cute to make! I'm not a fan of crop tops and I didn't take into account the length in the front so I added a separate panel to fix that for my comfort. I didn't use linen for my fabric I used a faux leather and power mesh for a different look. Great pattern definitely making this shirt again!
